(VOV) - Since the end of May, on average 300 tonnes of litchi were transported every day to the Chinese market through the Lao Cai international border gate.
Large volume of Vietnamese litchi exported to China
Between 2,000-5,000 tonnes of fresh litchi will be delivered to Chinese dealers each day in the next two weeks when the harvest season is at its peak.
Litchis are mainly grown in Bac Giang and Hai Duong provinces, less than 70km from capital Hanoi.
At present, the average export price ranges between VND10,000-12,000 per kilo, mostly shipped to wholesale markets in China’s Yunnan province.
Local businesses find it beneficial to export their products to China through official trade channels, thanks to the stable prices and simple procedures.
