15 March 2022, VN: According to information from the trade agency of the Vietnamese Embassy in China, the General Department of Customs of China recently announced the approval of five Vietnamese enterprises producing fresh chili to be registered to conduct export activities to the Chinese market from March 3, 2022.
According to the notice of Chinese authorities, Vietnamese fresh chili products exported to China must meet the country’s phytosanitary requirements. Consignments of fresh chili must be quarantined by Vietnamese functional units or establishments; at the same time, the relevant technical parameters should be clearly noted in the phytosanitary certificate.
Mr. Nong Duc Lai, Commercial Counselor of the Vietnamese Embassy in China, said that these are the first five Vietnamese enterprises licensed to export officially again to China, after a period of temporary stop. The demand of the country with 1.4 billion people for agricultural products and food is very large, so Vietnamese businesses need to study carefully to meet the increasing requirements of the Chinese market, thus promoting official export, ensuring stable output for Vietnam’s agricultural industry.
Counselor Nong Duc Lai also said that as of March 4, 2022, there were a total of 1,808 agricultural product and food product codes issued by Chinese authorities to Vietnamese enterprises for official export to China. In the context of China’s tightening quarantine activities for import and export of goods, especially at border gates to prevent and control the Covid-19 pandemic, the grant of official export codes is considered an inevitable direction to exploit the Chinese market well.
