Australian ambassador sees potential of durians from Davao

According to the Australian ambassador to the Philippines, there is a great potential for durians from Davao City in Australia, Ambassador to the Philippines Hae Kyong Yu said that there is a great prospect for the durian market in his nation to grow.

Yu said in an interview: “Australia has just 25 million people so it’s not a big country as the Philippines. The durian market is not huge but there is potential to grow... Australia is a multicultural society with immigrants like me living there we also have big Chinese and other groups and they love durian.”

According to the ambassador during her visit to a durian farm, the demand for the fruit overseas is so great that they cannot supply the demand for durian in other countries. Yu said the demand can influence farmers to shift to durian as conditions here in Davao is conducive to quality durian fruits.
