Bac Giang (VNA) – The northern province of Bac Giang organised a trade fair to promote lychee consumption in the Pingxiang city, Guangxi province, southwestern China, on June 9.

The province expects to ship 50,000 tonnes of lychees abroad, half of the volume to China.

The locality has nearly 30,000 hectares under lychee cultivation, with a total output expected to reach 100,000 tonnes in this year, according to Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Duong Van Thai.

President of the Pingxiang city-based Wan Li Company, Lu Chunhua said thanks to the zero percent tax of the China – ASEAN free trade area and convenient distribution channel, which takes only three days to get Bac Giang’s lychees in China, his company plans to buy 500 tonnes of Vietnam’s lychees to sell in major Chinese cities like Shanghai and Guangzhou.
