This is part of export contracts worth 5.5 million USD signed by South Chungcheong’s SMEs at consulting conferences on exports to Taiwan’s Taipei and Ho Chi Minh City, held in the two localities in early June.

At the events, six enterprises in the marine and fisheries sector engaged in export consulting activities focusing on their outstanding products such as anchovy snacks, shrimp sauce, seaweed sticks, dried seaweed, seasoned seaweed and cosmetics. Finally, they signed 12 export contracts worth a total of 5.5 million USD.

A leading official of South Chungcheong said that the province has supported businesses in finding partners and developing markets, and provided export consultation for SMEs wishing to expand operations abroad.
