Myanmar conveyed over 290,000 tonnes of fisheries worth US$448 million to more than 40 foreign countries in the past eight months of the current financial year 2023-2024 beginning 1 April, said U Nyunt Win, director of the Department of Fisheries in Nay Pyi Taw.
The fisheries are steadily delivered to Japan, countries from the Middle East, European Union member countries, Malaysia, Chinese Taipei, and Australia. Myanmar Fisheries Federation and the Department of Fisheries are closely working together to bolster fisheries exports.
“Fisheries exports are separated into three main categories: fish, shrimp and others. Fisheries exports are estimated at 180,000 tonnes, while shrimp export volume was 30,000. Myanmar exports fisheries to its trade partners via maritime and border channels. China and Thailand are the main buyers of Myanmar’s fisheries,” U Nyunt Win elaborated.
Myanmar has been focusing on fisheries processing in line with Good Manufacturing Practices to ensure seafood safety and comply with the relevant countries’ import rules and regulations.
Beyond seaborne export, Myanmar sends fisheries to neighbouring countries such as China and Thailand through Myawady, Muse, Kawthoung, Sittway, Myeik and Maungtaw border points.
The department and exporters are joining hands in fulfilling the requirements of each country that imports Myanmar’s fisheries and exerting concerted efforts not to reduce export volume. The country is endeavouring to adhere to the stricter regulations for seafood export set by countries like China. Myanmar is committed to meeting market demand and boosting fisheries exports. — ASH/EM
