Seafood Expo Global

Company Description:

The Myanmar Pavilion (Hall 8-4569) presents 6 experienced suppliers, the Myanmar Fishery Products Processors & Exporters Association (MPEA) and the online Seafood Trade Intelligence Portal (STIP), representing the full seafood variety of this country. The seafood sector in Myanmar has a large potential to contribute to food security, employment and economic development. It has shown dynamic development during the past period and is expected to show its full potential in the coming years. Myanmar is endowed with rich natural resources and has quite a few commercially interesting products, like rohu, shrimp, soft shell crab and pangasius, to offer. Moreover, the EU import limitations for farmed products like shrimp, soft shell crab and various fish species have been lifted recently. CBI supports the Myanmar seafood sector through an intensive more year export coaching programme aiming to contribute to sustainable economic development through the expansion of exports from Myanmar to Europe.
