According to Suarez, the text will allow Bolivia to export beef, pork and poultry to Vietnam, in the context of government policy to allow greater access to export markets of the surplus meats.

Recently, the president of the National Association of Poultry Farmers, Ricardo Alandia, recalled that at the end of 2017, a Bolivian commission traveled to Vietnam to try export pork meat and now they will try luck with poultry, in order to promote the product in this market of 100 million consumers. Alandia said if business gave good results after this contact, Bolivian enterprises qualified to export the product to that country are Santa Cruz and Imba of Cochabamba.

According to official data, the sector produces about 19 million poultry bags at national level.

The signing of the Memorandum was made in the context of the visit that a delegation of Bolivia headed by the Minister of Rural Development and Lands, Cesar Cocarico, to Asian countries like Vietnam and China.
