Eucolait welcomes approval of EU-Vietnam agreement by European Parliament

 

Eucolait warmly welcomes the vote in favour of the EU-Vietnam FTA which took place at the European Parliament today. Vietnam is a very important trading partner in the ASEAN region, with a population of almost 100 million and a growing appetite for quality dairy products.  

This win-win agreement will bring substantial economic benefits, notably by liberalising virtually all trade, addressing numerous non-tariff barriers and protecting our most iconic geographical indications. It also contains strong commitments on sustainable development, like all other recent trade deals concluded by the EU.

The concessions for dairy products are very generous, with full duty free access across the board after a maximum period of 5 years. Now that the way has been cleared to allow for this agreement to enter into application, the EU dairy trading community looks forward to reaping the benefits of the deal. European dairy companies are already very active on the Vietnamese market, shipping approximately € 170 million worth of product per year.

In truth, the EU-Vietnam FTA represents an absolute win for the EU dairy sector and will allow us to trade on a level playing field with Oceanian competitors in this promising market. We now call for a swift implementation so that this quality agreement can be utilised as soon as possible.
