A zero percent tax rate will be applied to Vietnamese tuna after the CPTPP takes effect.

A zero percent rate will be applied to Vietnamese seafood like tuna, shrimp and crab. All of the aquatic products that are not entitled to tax removal under the Vietnam-Japan free trade agreement will have their import duty abolished six, 11 or 16 years after the CPTPP takes effect.

The CPTPP became valid in Vietnam on January 14. Earlier, it entered into force on December 30, 2018 after Mexico, Japan, Singapore, New Zealand, Canada and Australia completed procedures to ratify the trade pact.

According to the Vietnamese Ministry of Planning and Investment’s research in September 2017, the CPTPP will boost the country’s GDP and exports by 1.32 percent and 4.04 percent, respectively, by 2035. Total import revenue is forecast to increase 3.8 percent, lower than export value.

In addition, the deal will help create more jobs, increase income and contribute to poverty alleviation.
