Efforts to find markets for Vietnam’s agricultural products

06/05/2015

The first days in May, cultivators with Thieu litchis received good news that the Australia Ministry of Agriculture officially allowed to import fresh Thieu litchis from Vietnam after years of negotiations. Earlier, the southern enterprises also worked with partners in Bac Giang to prepare fresh Thieu litchis to the US market in the litchis crop of this year after the US allowed import litchis from Vietnam in last year.
First of all, we can affirm that bringing fresh litchis on the difficult markets as an opportunity to expand the market for capital goods depends too much on the Chinese market for long time. Secondly, along with a number of new markets were opened last year, including Japan and  America and Australia in this year as well as more other markets in next years will help reducing jam of fresh fabric retention at the border and contribute to enhancing the value of this fruit. Third, not only litchi items, in the first two months of 2015, the enterprises exported 46.8 tons of mango to South Korea, almost all volumes in 2014. In 2015, Vietnam expects to export more mango, star apple to the United States, mango to Japan ... In the context of agricultural, forestry and seafood consumption from Vietnam were hit hard in the early months (watermelon and red onion jam, some exports declined), the fruits of Vietnam began penetrating mentioned above discerning markets is a good sign.
Furthermore, it proved another success in exploring and expanding market for new fruit consumption at the macro level. So far, we have been operating under the one-dimensional mechanism, only import but no export. There are times Vietnam has imported 36 kinds of fruit from the Australia but no exporting any fruits to this country. More importantly, the event that Thieu litchis from Vietnam accepted to import to Australia which will open up new opportunities for some other fruits such as dragon fruit, longan, mango ... However winning markets is difficult, keeping the markets is even more difficult. We must come up with solutions to maintain (and expand) these markets. The developing countries are building the high “technical fence”, strict requirements on the quality of imported food. In this market, fresh fruit of Vietnam must satisfy at least five requirements: Regarding the field, the farmers must adopt farming practices, manage pests and minimize pests on fruit harvest, applying GAP and it should be inspected, given identification numbers and other strict rules on packaging, storage by the Plant Protection Department, ,...
In recent years, exports of fresh vegetables of Vietnam have many times declined from this fence. In late 2014, at least two shipments of vegetables, fruit exports from Vietnam to the EU contained bollworm sticky, making vegetable exporters in danger of being stopped exporting.
Winning the fastidious markets Australia and the US ... just is the initial success, retention and further expanding of market segment promises to be a very arduous journey.

foreign markets, especially the US, EU often seriously consider the safety of products, so the Goverment should provide the cultivators with a guide in process of planting
