(ICD) Within the framework of the FAO-supported project “Capacity building to enhance positive impacts of WTO accession on the fisheries sector and alleviate coastal poverty” (TCP/VIE/3102(D)), the Project Management organized two Workshops on a National Action Plan with respect to the Sustainable Development of the Fisheries Sector upon Vietnam’s Accession to the WTO during the period 2010-2012” in Do Son, Hai Phong (on 4-5 June, 2009) and Can Tho city (on 8-9 June, 2009) respectively. Participants in the Workshops came from the Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Industry and Trade, National Committee for International Economic Cooperation (NCIEC), as well as MARD’s institutions and the provincial DARDs; many farmers from several coastal provinces/cities and businesses in the fisheries sector also participated. Also present were three international consultants from the FAO on trade, seafood markets, institution and legal issues, and seafood safety. Vice Minister Luong Le Phuong chaired the Workshop in Can Tho, while the DG for International Cooperation Le Van Minh and FAO Representative in Vietnam Andrew Speedy co-chaired the Workshop in Hai Phong. The Workshops discussed on the content and recommendations for the draft National Action Plan (NAP) with respect to the Sustainable Development of the Fisheries Sector upon Vietnam’s Accession to the WTO in the period 2010-2012, with the different topics of General Information on Fisheries, Fishery Markets and Exports, Fisheries-related Laws and Regulations of the WTO, Seafood Quality and Food Safety. The Workshops also discussed and agreed with the approach of formulating a NAP with respect to the Sustainable Development of the Fisheries Sector upon Vietnam’s Accession to the WTO during the period 2010-2012, based on the Program of Action of the Agriculture and Rural Development Sector to implement the Government’s Program of Action upon Vietnam’s Accession to the World Trade Organization (WTO) in the period 2007-2010, which was issued with Decision No.3165/QD-BNN-HTQT dated 16 November, 2007 by the Minister of MARD.
