Gov’t makes fisheries exports a higher priority in 2012Korea will seek to sharply increase its goal for fisheries exports in 2012 as overseas demand continues to rise, the government said yesterday.
Seoul is targeting fisheries exports of $2.5 billion for the coming year, up from an estimated $2.2 billion for 2011, according to the Ministry of Food, Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries. The ministry had originally planned to achieve the $2.5 billion mark by 2014.
It said it has established a task force at the Animal, Plant and Fisheries Quarantine and Inspection Agency to help boost overseas shipments of fisheries goods.
