Opportunities for banana exports to China 

The Protocol recently signed by the Vietnamese Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development and the General Administration of Customs China will bring opportunities and benefits to Vietnamese banana growers and exporters, said Minister Le Minh Hoan.
Hoan said the Protocol will ensure the official export of bananas at stable prices, facilitate customs clearance at border gates to ease overload of farm produce and banana products while improving the prestige of Vietnamese bananas.
As of 2019, Vietnam was home to 129,550ha of bananas, nearly 35,300ha of which was in the Mekong Delta with an output of over 478,800 tonnes.
Over 430,000 tonnes of Vietnamese bananas under quarantine were shipped to China in 2020. The volume increased to 574,000 tonnes in 2021 and 591,000 tonnes in the first nine months of this year./.
