The General Administration of Customs in China (GACC) recently published "An announcement regarding permission for import of refrigerated durian from Malaysia". The announcement was based on Chinese regulations and the "Treaty between GACC and the Malaysian Ministry for Agriculture regarding the quarantine requirements for refrigerated durian transported from Malaysia to China". Refrigerated durian from Malaysia that meet the quarantine requirements are now allowed entry into China.
Malaysia had already obtained permission to export refrigerated durian to China in 2011, but that permission only applied to pieces of refrigerated durian fruit flesh or pulp. Malaysia can now officially export whole refrigerated durian to China. The Malaysian Ministry of Agriculture aims to export 223,716 tons of durians to China this year.
