Viet­nam threat to sue Amer­ica in ex­port re­stric­tions row

Fish Farmer - - News -

VIET­NAM has warned it may sue the United States at the World Trade Or­gan­i­sa­tion if the strin­gent new US Farm Bill un­fairly dis­crim­i­nates against ex­ports of its cat­fish, said to be worth tens of mil­lions of dol­lars.

Viet­namese ex­porters say they will in­ten­sify lob­by­ing of US of­fi­cials and part­ners to show that the cat­fish mon­i­tor­ing pro­gramme is ex­pen­sive, un­nec­es­sary and should be abol­ished. US cat­fish breeders have re­peat­edly called for ac­tion to be taken against fish from Viet­nam.
