Dr. Pham Anh Tuan, Deputy Director, General, Directorate of Fisheries (D-FISH) of Vietnam meanwhile raised the Vietnamese concerns for the future of aquaculture.
While Mr. Petter Arnesen, Board Member EATiP / Marine Harvest focussed on the European interests for win-win relations with non EU partners.
