To realise the goal, various measures have been implemented, with attention paid to improving administrative procedures to help export enterprises expand their business. 

For the key export sector of frozen shrimp, local authorities have focused on managing and planning environmentally friendly shrimp-farming models with high productivity and quality, satisfying international standards and demand.

By 2020, Ca Mau will expand the area of ecological shrimp farms under forest canopies to 27,800 ha and over 10,000 ha of certified ecological shrimp farms. 

In addition, the province will also enlarge the area of extensive farming and mixed farming of shrimps to 100,000 ha and ecological shrimp farming area on rice fields to 53,000 ha. 

Trade promotion activities have also been enhanced, aiming to expand the locality’s export markets.
