Vietnam exported $107.25 million worth of fruit and vegetables to South Korea in the first eight months of this year, up 3.47 percent year-on-year.


The export value of vegetables and fruit to this market reached $11.1 million in August, up 13.66 percent over the same period last year, according to the General Department of Vietnam Customs.


Six kinds of Vietnamese fruit have been exported to the Asian market including: coconuts, pineapples, white and red dragon fruit, mangoes, and bananas.




However, the number of fruits exported to South Korea is still low. Banana volume accounts for 2 percent of total imports of the fruit. Meanwhile, the figure of the Philippines is about 75.8 per cent.


Vietnam’s pineapple volume accounts for 0.62 percent, while the volume imported from the Philippines accounts for 93 percent of the total.


Vietnam is cooperating with South Korean agencies to open more markets for other fruit like pomelos, lemons, longans, rambutans, and lychees.
