Until the end of September 2019, China - Hong Kong was a key market of many Vietnamese enterprises. This market accounted for an increasingly greater proportion in Vietnamese pangasius export structure. In the first nine months of 2019, the export value to China - Hong Kong accounted for 30.9% of the total pangasius export value, reaching USD 450.7 million, up 19.6% compared to the same period in 2018.

With this export value, China - Hong Kong market was twice as large as the 2nd largest Vietnamese pangasius importers - USA in terms of export value. Currently, China is the most diversified importer for many types of pangasius with frozen fillets and processed pangasius products of Vietnam such as frozen fillet pangasius, frozen whole pangasius butterfly, frozen whole pangasius, frozen pangasius stomach, frozen breaded pangasius.
