The Australian department will discuss plant guarantee measures with the Vietnamese side in the near future.

The agriculture ministry said this is good news for Vietnam’s fruit sector as Australia is a potential fruit export market. Earlier, the country also permitted the import of fresh lychees, mangoes and dragon fruits from the Southeast Asian nation.

Last year, fruit and vegetable exports set a record of 3.5 billion USD, rising by 40 percent from the previous year. Vietnamese fruits and vegetables are sold in 40 countries and territories around the world.
