Peruvian fruits are in fashion
and international markets do not resist them, this is how China continues to
allow the entry of new fruits for a few years.
By 2020, 9 new fruits are
expected to achieve the long-awaited access to the Asian giant, thus overcoming
the arduous sanitary entry protocols, according to the Chamber of Commerce of
Mónica Chávez, representative of the CCL, said that the free trade agreement has been a great boost for these achievements, thanks to the joint work of the National Agricultural Health Service, SENASA, and the respective Chinese authorities.
Among the nine products expected
to be placed this year in the Chinese market are pomegranate, Brazil nut,
bananas, fresh fruit and frozen fruit of: mango, avocado and cranberry; as well
as pork and horse meat. With all of them, our export basket would have a great
increase since China has a high demand market.
The entry procedure for the
grenade is one of the most arduous. Peru has already signed a memorandum of
understanding for the Chinese authorities that specifically talks about an
agreement between the two countries thus validating the cold treatment to which
this fruit is subjected, the same that is still under negotiation.
For the rest of the products, the Peruvian authorities have signed an agreement detailing the joint collaboration of SENASA and the General Customs Administration of the People’s Republic of China, for the processing of their income.
So far, non-traditional
agro-exports, corresponding to last year, indicate that 192 million were
reached, almost 15% more than what was obtained in 2018 and for this year, with
these new revenues, it is expected to raise that figure even more .
