Indonesia Explores Partnership with Vietnam in Fisheries Sector

4 February 2021 18:35 WIB

TEMPO.CO, JakartaThe Indonesian government is approaching Vietnam to collaborate in developing the marine and fisheries sector. Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Minister Sakti Wahyu Trenggono discussed the idea when met with the Indonesian Ambassador to Vietnam, Denny Abdi, at the Mina Bahari Building, Jakarta.

“We can collaborate. Indonesia and Vietnam have good relations for a long time. We also share a similar geographic path. We can work together,” said Trenggono in his statement on Friday, February 4.

Trenggono said Vietnam had the experience in advancing fish cultivation, such as using technology to enlarge lobsters. 

He believed that the collaboration would be beneficial for Indonesia’s fisheries and boost the country’s competitiveness, as well as push the fish cultivation sector in a bid to increase exports.

The similarities and good relations of the two countries, Trenggono said, could be the basis of the collaboration. Apart from the cultivation, he also encouraged partnership in the processing of fish products.

The Indonesian Ambassador to Vietnam Denny Abdi welcomed Trenggono’s plan. He said Indonesia’s wealth in marine and fisheries could be further explored. He hoped the bilateral ties could be stronger.
