They met on the sidelines of the 4th annual conference of the African Cashew Alliance (ACA) in Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire.
According to the discussions, the world cashew association will be established within a year.
Vietnam, India and Brazil are currently three of the world’s leading cashew exporters.
Vinacas said that it will talk about the matter further at a meeting in late September to discuss the import of raw cashew from African countries.
Vietnam cashew processors import about 100,000 tons of raw cashew nuts from Africa annually.
