The General Directorate for International Economic Relations, under the Chilean Ministry of Foreign Affairs, recently published the "Monthly foreign trade report for September, 2018". Chilean exports of cherries and blueberries are going very well this year because of strong demand from the Chinese market.

The Chilean website "America Economia" recently reported that the monthly foreign trade report showed that Chilean cherry and blueberry export performs exceptionally.
