Access to Chinese horticulture industry by China Green Week

European Union exports to China in 2015 totaled 22,768 tons, with a value of 36.3 million euros. Apples and pears were the main products exported, totaling 5,399 tons, with a value of 6,211 million euros, followed by citrus fruits, with 4,278 tons and a value of 4,220 million euros. Within the EU, Italy, France and Spain are the main exporters to China. Spain was also the first country in the world to be authorized to export peaches to China in July 2016. Spanish plum, peach and nectarine exports to China in 2016 came to 815 tons and were worth 1.32 million euros. Last year, according to the data for the period until November, EU exports to China reached 31,298 tons with a value of 45.6 million euros.

Since approximately 2 years, Chinese horticulture (especially the production of high-value vegetables and fruits) is clearly entering a new phase. Keywords are food safety, quality improvement, management/training and production-oriented investment. As the biggest market in the world, China is the market you can’t afford missing.

Since ancient times, agricultural exchanges and products have been the main part of the cooperation between countries on the Silk Road. "The Belt and Road” committed to upholding the global free trade system and an open world economic initiative. Along with the agricultural technology, agricultural products, trade and international cooperation will become the conjunction of the Belt and Road Community with China.

China Green Week will take place on Nov. 20-24th in Shanghai, China. CGW is dedicated to accelerating the development of China's fruit, vegetable and floriculture industry, by means of technology and equipment improvement, talent scouting and community building, branding, as well as facilitating direct trade and purchasing of fresh produce by professional buyers.

During the Week, “China Greenhouse Industry Conference”, “Seeding the Future Horticultural Industry Summit”, “Organic Vegetables and Fruits Regulations and Trends” and a series of events on “Fresh Fruits and Vegetables” would be taken to visitors. A “HORTI CHINA” exhibition, conjunction with Mac Fruit Attraction China in the framework of China Green Week, will be held on Nov. 22nd-24th in National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai).
