Organized for EUROFISH Member Countries, potential members and partners, we invite representatives from the ministries, trade associations, and companies to attend this webinar that will focus on four countries – China, Germany, UK, and Ukraine.
Every segment of Europe’s seafood industry and market has been affected by the coronavirus pandemic, some only marginally, others severely. Supply chains have broken, distribution channels have been blocked, special health/safety regulations have been implemented, with associated impacts on costs, revenues, and the bottom line.
Operating in this environment requires special knowledge about doing business internationally when the pandemic has caused new rules to be implemented and new market patterns. For companies looking to do business abroad, the pandemic has created the need for new information about trading internationally in this covid-influenced environment.
With this need in mind, the International Organisation for the Development of Fisheries and Aquaculture in Europe (EUROFISH), is organising a webinar as part of the services to its member countries. The speakers are seafood industry experts from four international markets: China, Germany, Ukraine, and the United Kingdom. The speakers will analyse, from their respective countries, the impacts of the pandemic on seafood production, consumption, and trade, what has changed in terms of rules and regulations that have an impact on seafood, and what is needed for companies to do business in these countries now. The webinar offers participants an excellent opportunity to gain knowledge about the challenges in expanding seafood business internationally during these times of uncertainty.
