The Fisheries Department stated that Myanmar has conveyed 627 tonnes of saltwater shrimp to China since November 2023, with an estimated earning of $1.795 million.
The livestock and fisheries products are exported to China under a trade channel regulated by the General Administration of Customs of the People’s Republic of China (GACC). Myanmar sends frozen shrimp to China using refer containers.
According to GACC Decree 248 and 249, GACC registration is mandatory for food exporters.
Myanmar signed with GACC for Sanitary and Phytosanitary Protocol (SPS Protocol) for aquatic product exports on 15 September 2023. The exports are processed with GACC registration. GACC’s approval authorizes four saltwater shrimp farming companies, and more companies are endeavouring to pass the registration process.
Myanmar delivers 300 seafood items under three categories (fish, shrimp and others) to 40 countries, including China, the US, Thailand, Saudi Arabia, Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, the UAE and the UK. — TWA/KK
