Continued ban on the export of South African deciduous Fruits to Thailand

While it is welcomed that the Citrus Protocol with Thailand was finalised in May 2012 after 14 years of negotiation, which now allows South Africa to start exporting citrus to Thailand for the first time, South African Table Grape Industry (SATI) say, "It is regretted that there has been no progress on the lifting of the ban on the exportation of South African fresh produce including table grapes, apples, pears and stone fruit after the Thai market was closed to South Africa in January 2008."

Currently there is a general degree of confusion as many stakeholders seem to think that South Africa is now able to export freely to Thailand and that citrus has been given access to Thailand again. The South African deciduous fruit industry wish to impress upon the Thai authorities to allow South Africa without further delay to resume its historic exports in these commodities which, at the time of the imposition of the ban, had a value of some US$ 6.7 million.
