New Zealand to lift import ban on Taiwanese mangoes

Taiwan's Council of Agriculture (COA) has issued a statement saying that New Zealand will soon remove its prohibition on imported Taiwanese mangoes. The ban was imposed after it found live fly larvae in a shipment of lychees and mangoes from Taiwan in June. At the time, Tsou Hui-chuan, deputy director-general of the COA's Bureau of Animal and Plant Health Inspection and Quarantine, said that the larvae had been found only on lychees and not on mangoes, even though they were part of the same shipment.

After discussions between the two sides, New Zealand has now agreed to lift the import ban on Taiwan mangoes, on condition of a quarantine process. Preparatory measures will be completed by next week.
