In addition, the department has sent a document to inform the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Hanoi of the inspection result.

According to the department, Vietnamese shrimp exporters to Taiwan (China) have closely controlled over material quality to meet food safety standards and ensure no impurities in their products.
