Fruit, veggie exports to China up 44%

Fruits and vegetables exported to China in October increased 44% year-on-year, earning revenues of $152 million.

The foreign trade agency under the Ministry of Industry and Trade says the export of fruits and vegetables is set to rise in the coming time because durian has been allowed to enter China under official quotas since September and banana will follow suit soon.
