Meanwhile, strong export growth was recorded in Thailand (37.6 percent), the Republic of Korea (16.7 percent), and the US (15.9 percent).

AgroTrade said that export of dragon fruits have faced difficulties as China is expanding cultivating areas for this kind of fruit.

Meanwhile, the shipment of other fruits and vegetables is forecast to face challenges in the remaining months of this year due to impacts of the rainy season, and the US-China trade war.

Furthermore, China is seeking new export markets, and promoting domestic consumption, thus reducing demand for imports.

However, Vietnamese vegetables and fruits will have new destinations thanks to many free trade agreements which help unlock potential markets for Vietnamese products. Businesses should enhance production in value chain to ensure good quality for exports.

During the January-July period, Vietnam splashed out 892 million USD on purchasing vegetables and fruits from foreign countries, an increase of 4.4 percent from the same time last year.
