The office, in collaboration with JSC Advanced International (AIC Group) Company and Supreme fresh Farm Sdn Bhd Malaysia, successfully shipped 10 tonnes of Vietnamese fresh longan to the Malaysian market for the first time, after more than two years of preparing for the export of this fruit to the country.
To promote exports of the Vietnamese longan to Malaysia, on September 28, the enterprises also partnered with the Matahari supermarket chain to organise a programme on advertising the Vietnamese fresh longan in Selangor, Malaysia.
The programme introduced the Vietnamese fresh longan to potential Malaysian customers, who liked the fruit for its delicious taste and reasonable price.
Recently, several Vietnamese fruits have been granted export licences for many countries, including mango and dragon fruit to Australia./.
