Plans are underway to export the Myanmar avocado to the China market legally, in cooperation with the Ministry of Commerce and the Myanmar Avocado Producer and Exporter Association, according to a report in Myawady News Daily yesterday.
“We are trying to export the Myanmar avocado to China legally. Also, we are preparing to cultivate and grow the Myanmar avocado systematically. The avocado market is likely to be good if we can legally export the fruit when the avocado fruits pick up,” said U Lin Thant Aung, secretary of the Myanmar Avocado Producer and Exporter Association.
Although Myanmar has exported avocados to the China market in the past, the exports were illegal.
Therefore, we are making arrangements to export avocados legally to build a strong market in China.
“To export avocados to China legally, China’s agricultural experts will come and check our avocado farms. If they recognise our farming system, they will give us a certificate. Recently, we have been working on our farms. When we are ready, we will invite them to check our farming,” he said.
“For the development of the avocado cultivation sector, we are planning to purchase avocado seeds from America to be cultivated in Myanmar,” he added.
There are some 20,000 areas of avocado cultivation in Myanmar that produce over 10,000 tonnes of avocados annually.
