Shrimp shipments abroad increase 52% in May
The increase in purchasing power in China’s middle class, and the recovery of the U.S. economic, has promoted the growth of Ecuadorian shrimp exports in the first five months of this year.
According to the analysis of the executive director of the National Chamber of Aquaculture, Yadira Piedrahita, another factor favoring the increase in sales abroad is the reduced supply from Asian producers, including Vietnam, India and China.
Until May, according to Central Bank figures, exports rose 52% from $ 306.31million in May last year to $465.76 million during the same period of 2011.
