Vietnam’s fruits and vegetables earn US $136 million

The country aims to earn US $280 million in 2006, or a year-on-year rise of 19%, MARD said, adding up Vietnam’s fruits and vegetables are now accessible in 50 countries and territories with China, Russia and Japan being its largest markets.

To this end, MARD are concentrating on building trademarks for a number of specialty products, attractive marketing activities and increasing the land of profitable fruits and vegetables. It is also absorbed on planning material zones and widely applying superior technology into production.

A number of rigorous fruit zones have been productively set up such as the Hoa Loc sweet mango in the Mekong delta region of Tien Giang, dragon fruit in central Binh Thuan province, litchi in northern BAC Giang province, grapes in central Ninh Thuan provine and the Nam Roi pomelo in the Mekong delta province of Vinh Long.

However, these zones are only bookkeeping for a small proportion of the country’s total acreage of 755,000 ha of orchards. A mass of the country’s fruit acreage are properties of cultivator households.
