Myanmar’s fruit exporters face difficulties with China’s quality inspections

DESPITE China’s demand for Myanmar’s fruits, Myanmar still has not received approval from food safety inspection mechanism_ the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ) of the People’s Republic of China for imported fruits and Myanmar’s exporters are experiencing hardship in export, according to Myanmar Fruit, Flower and Vegetable Producer and Exporter Association (MFVP).
        There is China’s demand for Myanmar’s Sein Ta Lone mango (Diamond Solitaire), avocado and muskmelon.
        “Without AQSIQ’s registration, Myanmar cannot export the fruits legally. Seeking AQSIQ process can be made between the two governments. The AQSIQ’s approval is crucial in exporting the fruits through legal trade channel”, said Dr. Myint Sein, vice chair of MFVP.
        MFVP showcased the country’s products at 15th China- ASEAN expo held in the second week of September in Nanning city, China. Chinese merchants expressed their interest in quality of agricultural produce and proposed to purchase them, according to MFVP.
        “We came to know the international traders are interested in local agricultural produce when it is exhibited. It benefits the growers as well as the country’s export sector”, said Dr. Myint Sein.
        Elephant foot yam and cardamom were previously restricted for export as they were included in the list of forest products. Now, the restriction has been lifted and they are available for export. Traders from China and Canada showed their interest in them, MFVP stated.
        Dr. Myint Sein put forward three points to enhance fruits, flower and vegetable production industry at 20th regular meeting between the Private Sector Development Committee led by Vice President 1, and private entrepreneurs held on 6 October. He requested authorities to have legal trade channel as Chinese merchants proposed to purchase 5 tons of dried tea leaf when tea booth was showcased at China-ASEAN Expo held in Nanning city. They also offered to buy dried Kayen chilli. Nevertheless, Myanmar cannot seek China’s AQSIQ registration. Therefore, MFVP called for government to government discussion for this between the two countries. Additionally, he also requested to set respective zone areas for each vegetable to produce quality vegetables and fulfill the market’s demand.
