"We can meet Vietnamese businesses'needs for low-priced wheat," Derek Sliworksy, CWB marketing director in Asia Pacific, said at the seminar held by CWB.
Through two importers Toepfer and Sojitz that have offices in Vietnam, CWB is offering a price of US$120-US$150 for a ton of wheat FOB Canadian port.Of which, the cheaper category targets the husbandry and aquaculture industries in Vietnam.
However, CWB admitted that it was not easy to penetrate the Vietnamese market as the transport cost has tripled from more than one year ago.Sliworksy said the fee for transporting wheat from Canada to Vietnam has increased from US$20-22/ton previously to US$55-65 at present.
"With the surge in shipping charges, Vietnamese businesses have increasingly turned to wheat from those countries in closer proximity," he said.In addition, the weak U.S. dollar has bolstered the competitiveness .of American wheat over Canadian products, he added.

Derek Sliworsky, who's originally from the Dauphin area, is the general manager of the CWB's Tokyo office.
"Being from the prairies, earthquakes are still a little bit new to me, but it felt like I was strapped to the top of a bucking bronco. You couldn't believe that a building could stand such a force like that," he says.
Sliworsky says they believe all the CWB's employees are safe.
"One person was away on a holiday and we haven't been able to contact them. We assume they're safe but just due to the inability to get through on the phone we've been unable to confirm that but given where they were I don't think there will be a problem or an issue," he says.
