China was the biggest importer of Vietnamese fruits by occupying over 59% of the market shares.

However, overseas shipment to China and Singapore decreased by 29% and 1%, respectively. 

The rest of export markets increased including the RoK (up 25.5% with 4.6% of the market share); Thailand (up 234% with 4.5% of the market share); the U.S. (up 10%) and Japan (up 13%). 

The MARD attributed the declining fruit export turnover to lower overseas shipment of key products including dragon fruits (down 6%); banana (down 9.5%); durian (down 71%); and watermelon (down 38.5%). 

The MARD reported that in the reviewed period, Viet Nam imported US$ 708 million of fruits, representing a year-on-year decline of 37.7%. The U.S., China, and Australia were the three biggest fruit exporters to Viet Nam./.
