The Food, Agri and Aqua Business sector is important for Vietnam. EuroCham's Food, Agri and Aqua Business Sector Committee (FAABS) believes that it will remain important in the future as well. FAABS believes that the Food, Agri and Aqua Business sector can become stronger, more competitive and more high-tech without detrimental effects for the population, country and environment. On the contrary, FAASC believes that, in the long-term, the sector could become more sustainable without necessarily increasing costs.
