On Jan 31, General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ) published a list of fresh fruits that have recently been given permission to export to different foreign countries.
This list has a total of 14 items including apple, orange, litchi, longan, cantaloupe, and grape etc., but does not include any item under traditional trade*. Compared with the list published on Jul 13, 2017, the new list has included stone fruits for Australia.
On Jan 4, AQSIQ updated the inspection and quarantine standards for the export of apple, pear, nectarine, peach, pear and apricot. This means Australia has given the green light for all types of stone fruits from China.
