Indonesia fruit exports face challenges

Indonesia is a major market for Chinese exports of apples and pears, and fresh pear exports accounted for 23% of fruits exported to Indonesian, while apple accounted for 7%. However, according to the No. 4 regulations published by the Indonesian Ministry of Agriculture in 2015, strict entry barriers and complex entry procedures are established for fresh products with plant origins that are imported to Indonesia.

As the provision involves fruit such as apples and pears, some experts indicated that the implementation of the new regulations in Indonesia intensifies the declining situation of pear and apple prices in China, which worsens the current performance of apples and pears in the market.

Currently No.80 Hebei pear medium quality export has dropped 13% compared with the same period of last year, or a 49% decrease as the year on year comparison. As for Fuji apples, their export volume has decreased 10% compared with the same period of last year, or 58% decrease in the year on year comparison.

It is reported that more than 60% of the market of certain Hebei fruit export companies are from Indonesia, and without any doubt, the implantation of this regulation will worsen the current pear and apple export of these companies.
