After seeing the high demand for the fruit, Billyan Global Resources has decided to increase Vietnamese lychee imports for sale in Kuala Lumpur and nearby states, such as Selangor.

In the near future, an additional 20 containers, each weighing nearly 10 tonnes, will be delivered to Malaysia for consumption.

Back in 2015, imported Vietnamese lychees also became a popular sell in the city of Klang.

Apart from Malaysia, Vietnamese lychees have also been present in several demanding markets such as the US, Australia, Japan, and Europe.

Vietnamese Commercial Counsellor in Malaysia Pham Quoc Anh said the Vietnamese Trade Office has partnered with authorities to bring Vietnamese lychees and various other local goods – such as fruits and vegetables, seafood, and processed foods – to Malaysia.

He advised Vietnamese enterprises to improve their product design, quality, and delivery standards to increase their market share in Malaysia.
