(BGO) - Bac Giang lychee is offered green zone to export to China, reported the provincial Department of Industry and Trade.
Because China still applies Zero Covid policy, farm produce export has encountered many difficulties. To handle the bottle neck, Bac Giang province actively cooperated to propose relevant ministries and sectors to connect and offer “green zone” in Lang Son province to export local lychees.
A lychee purchasing point in Truong Son commune (Luc Nam district).
After quarantine stage, lychees are gathered at specific area with separate route to facilitate fastest export to Chinese market.
Sometime 101 trucks carrying farm produce completed customs clearance at border gate to China, 73 of which transported Bac Giang lychees.
So far, the province has consumed over 22,500 tonnes of lychee, more than 11,700 tonnes of which were exported (over 90 percent to Chinese market) and remaining quantity were sold domestically.
To ease the lychee export to China, the competent agencies recommend farmers and owners of purchasing points to follow harvest procedure and meet Chinese standard such as cutting the stem less than 10cm and removing leaves.
