Vietnamese authorities unclear

Is an orange a citrus fruit?

During 2013 all citrus exports from South Africa to Vietnam were stopped by the authorities in that country. There seems to be problem with the definition of “citrus” – and particularly whether oranges are citrus.

The Vietnamese authorities have subsequently requested that South Africa supply the data package for oranges; followed by the other citrus types. Justin Chadwick from South African Citrus Growers Association said, "Generally we prefer to apply for all citrus as a group – however, due to the very specific request from Vietnam the data package for oranges will be supplied immediately, to be followed by the others."
