After Australia opened door for Vietnamese fresh lychees and mangoes, the two ministries have actively worked with the Australian Department of Agriculture and Water Resources to export other fruits like dragon fruit, rambutant, star apple and longan to the market.

On June 15, the Australian Embassy in Vietnam sent a letter to the Minister of Industry and Trade updating information about Australia’s opening door for Vietnam fresh lychees and offering support for the application for  the Food Standards Australia New Zealand’s permission for irradiation treatment of dragon fruits before shipping to Australia.

Meanwhile, the Vietnamese Trade Office in Australia has developed a trade promotion plan and collected information on markets, tastes, quality standards and regulations and distribution networks to help domestic businesses enter the demanding market successfully.

Dragon fruit is one of Vietnam’s key export fruits with export sales of US$895.7 million last year, accounting for 50.3% of total fruit exports and 36.1% of total fruit and vegetable exports.
