Break-out session: Shrimp Production (part 2)
This seminar will address three main questions: (1) Will Chinese domestic production soon become a threat to Chinese shrimp imports from overseas? (2) What are the strategies of Asian producers to remain competitive and find their niche in the marketplace? (3) Does a focus on cooked and breaded products make sense, in order to stay away from direct competition for raw frozen products?
