The delegation will do spot checks of coastal provinces and cities and evaluate Vietnam’s yellow card status.

Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Vu Van Tam said: “The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development has prepared for the meeting with the EC delegation. We will report on what has been done and what hasn’t been done yet. We hope to receive the EC’s feedback on our current problems. We will do whatever we can to get the EC to lift the yellow card on Vietnam’s seafood.”

On October 23, 2017, the EC issued a yellow card warning to Vietnam that requires Vietnam to implement 9 recommendations in 6 months. Since then, Vietnam has been active in implementing the recommendations to ensure responsible and sustainable fisheries.
