Recently, the launching ceremony of RCEP in the agricultural field of Guangdong Suixi, and the online cultural festival of characteristic agricultural products (cherry tomatoes, pitaya, sweet potatoes), were successfully held in Suixi County, Zhanjiang City. Taking this as an opportunity, Suixi County released ten action plans for RCEP in the agricultural sector, promoting special agricultural products, showing the achievements of industrial development, and seizing the new opportunities of RCEP.
On the road of agricultural foreign exchange, Suixi is making great progress. In 2020, the China (Guangdong) Banana International Online Culture Festival was held, and pitayas were officially exported to Dubai, Canada and other places in the same year, achieving a "zero breakthrough" in export. In October 2021, as one of the "two cities and four counties" in the province, Suixi was included in the first batch of agricultural trade base establishment units, and the Suixi County RCEP Banana International Purchasing and Trading Center was selected into the first batch to be established.
Suixi not only released the "Top Ten Actions for Docking RCEP in Suixi's Agricultural Field", but also listed 10 planting bases including cherry tomato, sweet potato, pitaya and banana in the county as "RECP production bases" for key construction and cultivation. Suixi cherry tomato is an improved variety, with thin skin and crisp flesh; it is sweet and juicy, and very competitive in the market. At present, the planting area of this kind of cherry tomato in Suixi County is about 533 hectares, with an output of about 32,000 tons.
In July 2020, Suixi pitayas passed inspection and quarantine and were sent to Dubai, the United Arab Emirates and Canada, achieving a "zero breakthrough" in the export of Suixi pitayas, and also a "zero breakthrough" in the export in Zhanjiang City. Since then, the Suixi pitaya, known as "China's sweet", has officially entered into “sweet” contact with foreign consumers. This year, it is expected to continue to expand the sales market radius of Suixi pitaya, with the help of RCEP.
