The Viet Nam Pangasius Association (VNPA) will lead a three-member delegation at Seafood Expo North American (SENA) in Boston, Massachusetts, USA, from March 15 to 17.

The VNPA delegation will be led Chairman Dr. Nguyen Viet Thang, Vice Chairman and General Secretary Dr. Vo Hung Dung and Mr. Tran Van Hung, a member of the executive committee.
