Australian agencies are finalizing procedures to allow Vietnamese exporters to ship mangoes into the market, said a source from the Vietnam Business Association.
Relevant agencies and companies have carried out market research and other activities to connect Vietnamese exporters with Australian buyers, the source told Thanh Nien.
Vietnamese mangoes are expected to sell well in the "difficult market," the source said.
According to the business association in Australia, the Vietnamese-Australian community is now supplying around 30 percent of tropical fruit and vegetables to Australian consumers.
However, fruit exports directly from Vietnam have not been able to make inroads into the market. So far Australia has only licensed the imports of lychees.
According to customs, the total value of Vietnam’s fruit and vegetables exports last year was $2.2 billion, up 47 percent over the previous year.
