Malaysia: Aiming for durian exports worth RM350 millions to China

The Ministry of Agriculture and Agro-Based Industry aims to export 223,716 tonnes of frozen durian  in the form of cloves and paste valued at RM350 million (€75.7 mln) to China this year. Minister Datuk Salahuddin Ayub said the amount was achievable as 12 more companies had received approval to set up durian processing facilities apart from the existing 19, taking the total to 31 companies.

He said the success was a result of the Ministry’s visit to and discussions with the General Administration of Customs of the People’s Republic of China (GACC) in Beijing in February: “I will cooperate with all parties to ensure that this potential can be enhanced, especially in exporting durians to China in larger quantities. With this development, I also hope they (the companies) will maintain the quality of durians to be exported so that the approval given will not be revoked.”
