Hampered by customs clearance and border anti-epidemic measures, Vietnam fruit exports encountered difficulties. A large number of fruits such as dragon fruit and durian stranded in ports, being unable to enter into the Chinese market. Vietnamese authorities have been forced to adjust the export structure of agricultural products, in order to mitigate the loss of income caused by the outbreak.
Mr. Lin Jipeng said that the price for all kinds of Vietnam imported fruits has been risen recently, but due to still limited demand, the scale is little. The price change will be still determined by the market demand later.
