100 tonnes of lychees to be exported to Australia in coming days

15 June 2021

VOV.VN - Approximately 100 tonnes of Vietnamese lychees are due to be exported to both South Australia and Western Australia in the near future, according to the Ministry of Industry and Trade.

The move is part of the Vietnamese Trade Office in Australias work with lychee importers to agree on a plan aimed at exporting roughly 100 tonnes of local lychees to South Australia and Western Australia.

The Trade Office will continue to deploy a scheme to develop a brand and promote the consumption of Vietnamese lychees in Australia over the course of this year. This will be done by strengthening trade connectivity and sending inspection teams to remove difficulties relating to import procedures in the Australian market.

The programme aims to stimulate demand for lychees and other Vietnamese farm products on social networks, at stores and supermarkets, as well as through other information channels.

The Trade Office has proposed that Australian agencies facilitate customs clearance procedures in order to help Vietnamese lychees make greater inroads into the market.

Last year, despite numerous difficulties occurring in air freight and marine transportation due to the COVID-19 impact, local lychee export turnover to Australia increased by 188% compared to the same period from 2019.
