Currently, Armenia is its active agricultural period. Exports are being carried out smoothly, without real problems, Deputy minister of economy Arman Khojoyan stated as much during a press conference in Armenpress.
“Trucks pass the border checkpoints without any problems, delivering the agricultural goods to the foreign markets on time. According to our operative data, 13,000 tons of apricots, nearly 3,200 tons of cherries, 21,000 tons of tomatoes, 800 tons of strawberries and other goods have already been exported. A total of 58,000 tons of fruits-vegetables have been exported,” the deputy minister said, adding that this figure is less by 15% from the figure of the same period of 2019.
The latter is connected with the apple harvest. This year 5,500 tons of apples were exported, whereas in the same period of 2019 this number stood at 11,500 tons.
As reported on armenpress.am, there is also a decline in export of apricots, the reason being the bad weather conditions.
