Vietnam: 300,000 tonnes of dragon fruit have no buyers with China clamping down on border trade

Beijing: China's border clamp down is hitting Vietnam hard as around 300,000 tonnes of dragon fruit will soon be ripe for harvest but without buyers, media reports said on Monday.

With the northern provinces of Quang Ninh and Lang Son having both restricted trade at the border with China due to containers pilling up, many Chinese buyers have stopped purchasing Vietnamese dragon fruit, Phan Van Tan, deputy director of Binh Thuan’s Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, told a forum Thursday as quoted by VN Express.

Dragon fruit prices have dropped in recent weeks as China tightened its COVID-19 measures.

The tightening of the measures have left thousands of container trucks to get stuck at the border.

Some exporters told VN Express they have tried to transport goods via sea but this is not a sustainable solution as shipping fees have surged three times from before.

Dragon fruit exports to China exceed that of 50 other markets, said Nguyen Khac Huy, CEO of Hoang Phat Fruit in Long An Province.
