Optimistic prospect for Vietnamese agro exports as China eases Covid rules

China’s relaxation of Covid rules is expected to spur Vietnam’s vegetable and fruit exports and help the sector earn US$4 billion in 2023. Agro products exported to China via phytosanitary protocols are forecast to grow rapidly this year thanks to the reopening of the biggest market for Vietnamese vegetables and fruits.

The protocols paved the way for Vietnamese crops to enter the Chinese market. Thanks to them, durian shipments to the northern neighbor in October 2022 skyrocketed to US$49.9 million, accounting for nearly a third of the total export turnover from the market, 42.2 times higher than in the same period in 2021.

While the protocols give momentum to vegetable and fruit exports, the loosening of Covid-19 restrictions is expected to boost the industry.
