Aiming to prepare for the Vietnamese mango soon to appear in Australia, right after the licensing, Vietnamese representatives in Australia conducted market surveys and worked to mobilize and connect with local enterprises.
According to the Vietnamese Commercial Affairs office in Australia, although few Vietnamese people live in northern Australia, only about 900 people; they supply 30% of the tropical fruits and vegetables for the country. Northern Australia supplies up to 50% of mango volume of the country, of which Vietnamese farms produced 50% of the volume in the region.
Earlier, the Australian Ministry of Agriculture in 2015 allowed the import of Vietnamese litchi, thus paving the way for other fresh Vietnamese fruits such as dragon fruit, longan and mango to penetrate the market./.
