VGP – The northern province of Hai Duong exported 1.2 tons of fresh lychee to Japan on June 23. 

The northern province of Hai Duong exports 1.2 tons of fresh lychee to Japan on June 23, 2020.

This is the first time Hai Duong lychee has been exported to Japan after the export of Bac Giang lychee to the Northeast Asian country a few days ago.

Besides its established markets, Hai Duong lychee has been allowed to find its ways to two new and fastidious markets of Japan and Singapore in 2020.

Just last week, Ameii Viet Nam shipped, for the first time, about one ton of lychee from Bac Giang to Japan. It has also exported 60 tons to Singapore, half of which were grown in Hai Duong.

The total area of Thanh Ha lychee in Hai Duong stands at 10,000ha, which are expected to produce more than 40,000 tons this year. The province has so far earned over VND 1.1 trillion (US$ 47.28 million) from the local specialty.

The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development has worked with Japan’s Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (MAFF) over the last four years to conduct testing and negotiations to pave the way for exports.

Japan is expected to purchase some 100 tons of fresh “thieu” lychee from Viet Nam this year.
