Live fishery exports to recover when international flights resume

Fish are farmed sskm
Fish are farmed in an artificial pond in Ayeyawady Region where fish and shrimp farming businesses are likely to receive funding as part of an EU aquaculture project.

Exports of prawns and crabs to foreign markets have been declining since the COVID-19 pandemic in April 2020. However, they have continued to operate without a hitch. With the opening of international flights in the third wave of the COVID-19 disease, the fisheries export sector will recover.
The government promotes the domestic consumption of livestock and fisheries. It boosts exports, while private entrepreneurs are trying to gain access to foreign markets compared to other countries in the region.
Myanmar has gained access to live shrimp and crab markets in China and Hong Kong over a few years. It generates foreign currency, and exports were temporarily suspended due to the flight difficulties in the third wave of COVID-19. “Live shrimps and crabs are shipped within 24 hours by flight. We are ready to operate the business once the international flights resume,” said an official from the Super Search Capital (Hong Kong) Co., Ltd. The business was also operational during the first wave of COVID-19, and it could resume as soon as transportation is convenient. Fisheries, shrimp and crap are transported from Kawthoung to Yangon and then to the market country via flight.
Millions of people consume Myanmar’s exports to China, and the Myanmar market in Hong Kong is thriving. Despite rising demand, exports of live fishery products have been suspended due to transportation constraints, will return to normal if flights suspended due to the global epidemic open. — Nyein Thu/GNLM
