Chile to export avocados to Chinese market

On July 7, the Agricultural Attache of the Embassy of Chile in China, Alvaro Aspee, and the deputy director of the Chinese Animal and Plant Quarantine Supervision, Chen Hongjun, signed in Beijing the Initial Protocol for Chilean avocado exports to China. 

Ronald Bown, president of the Fruit Exporters Association of Chile AG (ASOEX), explained that the signing "was the initialization of the document that will be formally signed by the Minister of Agriculture, Carlos Furche, during his visit to China in early September." 

The representative of ASOEX said the signing of the initial protocol for Chilean avocado exports to China was the result of the joint work between the Chilean public and private sector, represented by the Ministry of Agriculture, the Agricultural and Livestock Service (SAG), the embassy of Chile in China and ASOEX, with the support of the AQSIQ. 

"The signing of this initial protocol is very good news for the industry," Bown said. 

"As an industry, we thank the support of the authorities, especially that of the Ministry of Agriculture and the SAG, who supported us in our desire to open China as a new market destination for Chilean avocados," he added. 

Bown said that, to make it official, this protocol was only missing being signed by the Ministers of Agriculture of both countries. However, he said, "avocado exports might start on the date of the initial document."
