Mr. Dao Van Ho, Director of the Agricultural Trade Promotion Center under the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development reported that this will be the first time an aquaculture fair will be organized in Ha Noi. The upcoming event expects to advertise and promote the habit of catfish consumption among domestic customers.

Mr. Ho added that even though Vietnamese catfish products are available at 160 foreign countries and territories, domestic customers especially those from the North still find it unfamiliar. The official said that Vietnamese producers used to focus on export market, not the domestic one. Hence, the fair will introduce catfish products and processed products; and showcase special aquactic products.

Especially, the organization board will organize a gastronomy festival and invite chefs to cook various dishes from catfish./.
