(VOVworld) – Vietnamese fruit exports see bright prospects in 2015 after Vietnam’s first batch of fresh longan exported to the US last December, followed by 8 other batches early this month. Vietnam is implementing necessary technical steps to export its lichees to the United States this year. Mangos and star apples may also be approved to enter the US markets.
Several other high-demand markets have also opened to a number of Vietnamese fruits. Vietnam and Japan are negotiating certain conditions for Japan to import Vietnam’s red-flesh dragon fruits. The Republic of Korea has already imported Vietnamese mangos and is considering importing star apple fruits from Vietnam.
Meanwhile, necessary procedures are under way for Vietnam’s mangosteen and plums to enter China’s markets.
