The Vietnamese Ministry of Industry and Trade on Friday said that the respond came after Vietnam sent a letter to Australian authorized agencies about the ban.
Australia has been willing to work with the Vietnamese side to review risk estimation measures to facilitate restart of safe trade activities on prawn and raw prawn products.
At present, the country is focusing on handling biological safety issues as soon as possible, reviewing import conditions to affected items and making necessary decisions to reestablish prawn trade activities in line with duties of a WTO member.
The Vietnamese Ministry of Industry and Trade together with the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development have continued working with Australian authorized agencies to soon remove the temporary ban.
