EU May Lift Embargo on Indonesian Seafood
May 5, 2008
The European Union may lift its embargo on Indonesian seafood imports in the next two months because it says the country has steadily improved the quality of its seafood products.
In the first four months of 2007, the EU rejected only two Indonesian seafood shipments, Director General of Fishery Processing and Marketing Martani Huseini told Asia Pulse today.
Last year, there were 17 such rejections, down from 34 in 2006 and 49 in 2005, he said.
Huseini said last week's meeting between EU and Indonesian trade officials in Brussels was a success.
