Vietnam earned 213 million USD from exports of fruit and vegetables in the first four months of this year, a year-on-year rise of 44.1 percent, according to the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MoIT).

Exports of fruits and vegetables to the US, Japan, the Republic of Korea (RoK) and New Zealand have seen many favourable conditions.

The US has allowed importing fresh rambutan from Vietnam, while Japan and the RoK have given authorisation to imports of fresh blue dragon fruit and New Zealand allowed importing of fresh mango from Vietnam.

With those good signs, the country is expected to earn over 500 million USD in exports of fruits and vegetables for the whole year.
