Vietnam dragon fruit is exported to 40 countries around the world

Vietnamese dragon fruit has been exported to 40 countries and territories such as China, Thailand and Indonesia, according to the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD).

The fruit is also entering new markets including India, New Zealand, Australia and Chile, said the ministry.

The MARD is coordinating with the Ministry of Industry and Trade to complete procedures to ship dragon fruit to Australia in 2017.

In mid-June, a letter was sent to the Vietnamese Ministry of Industry and Trade by the Australian Embassy in Vietnam, detailing the process of opening the market for Vietnamese fresh dragon fruit.

Dragon fruit is a Vietnamese agricultural staple, with export earnings of 895.7 million USD in 2016, making up of 50.3 percent of the country’s fresh fruit exports and 36.1 percent of overall vegetable exports
