Let's find out the prerequisites for successful export of Vietnamese agricultural and aquatic products to this market in the article below !!
According to Le Hoang Oanh, Director of the Asia-Africa Market Department, Ministry of Industry and Trade, China is currently the No. 1 consuming market for agricultural and aquatic products in Vietnam, accounting for 27.3% of total export turnover. However, many more and more stringent requirements were made for exports to China.
Under the commitments when joining international organizations and the framework of international law, countries such as China, Japan and South Korea all apply tariff quotas on some imported agricultural products to protect In the case of non-quota imported goods, the market will be subject to a very high tax rate compared to the imported quota.

As one of the pioneering dairy exporters to the Chinese market, Mr. Ngo Minh Hai, Chairman of the TH True Milk Group's Board of Directors, said that China is the second largest dairy consumer market in the world.
Currently, China is only producing enough to meet 75% of demand. However, the scarcity of supply does not mean that China relaxes the criteria. The fact that the Protocol on veterinary requirements and public health for Vietnam's dairy products exported to China was signed between Vietnam and China last April does not mean that Vietnamese enterprises have a lot of more opportunities if it is not possible to prove their capacity in closed-chain dairy production, traceability and control of disease and food safety.
According to Hai, the reality of China's regulations and requirements is becoming more and more stringent. Chinese dairy product regulations and standards, as well as safety tests, are the strictest in China's legal system for the quality management of dairy products.
Therefore, foreign businesses, including Vietnam, when exporting agricultural products and milk to China must overcome the strict quality and safety requirements of the Chinese Food and Drug Administration. Quoc.

At the same time, strengthening training and replication of agricultural production models according to GlobalGAP, VietGAP, HACCP standards.
"It is necessary to change the approach of thinking and should not consider China as an easy market, focusing on the quality of agricultural products and strictly implementing the regulations," Oanh recommended.
