Many foreign delegations will be there for this opportunity: China (Shanghai and Qingdao), the Viet Nam (Hanoi and Haiphong), Indonesia (East Java), Mexico (Veracruz State and national organizations), Argentina (Province of Chubut), Quebec (Rimouski and Québec), Ivory Coast (Ministry of fisheries), and the United States, among others.
