Vietnamese fruit imports into Guangxi ports requires traceability

Starting from April, Chinese companies that import Vietnamese fruit need to provide "the information on product quality and traceable packaging" when they apply for permission at the Guangxi Import and Export Office for Quality Supervision, Inspection, and Quarantine. In practical terms, this means that companies need to list in Chinese or English the product name, place of origin, and packaging factory name and code. Apart from this, entrepreneurs can also add a bar-code, QR-code, and trademark to assist inspection.

China's General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine assessed and approved four additional ports designated for fruit import in 2017. Guangxi currently has a total of seven ports designated for fruit imports. Guangxi also placed Vietnamese dragon fruit, longan, and purple mangosteen on the list of fruits that companies can import with loans on favorable terms.

A representative of the ASEAN Fruit Import and Export Traders Association in China (Pingxiang) stated that China's annual demand for imported fruit is huge. Almost 50% of China's fruit imports enter the country through Pingxiang City.
