2022 has been a successful export year, as Vietnam’s produce has accessed many international markets. The Plant Protection Department -under the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development- already spoke about the Japanese market opening to Vietnam’s longan, the Chinese market to sweet potatoes and the New Zealand market to lemons and pomelo.
This year, many Vietnamese produce items have obtained rights to enter foreign markets. Passion fruit has entered the Chinese market under temporary regulations. Durian and bananas were also accepted by China after the signing of a protocol on phytosanitary requirements. The two sides recently signed a protocol on phytosanitary requirements on sweet potatoes imported from Vietnam.
Vietnam’s lemon and pomelo now can enter New Zealand after import requirements were signed by the two sides on November 15. Most recently, the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries of Japan officially stated on its website that Vietnam’s fresh longan can be imported to Japan.
