Hai Duong, June 6 (VNA) - Ameii Vietnam exported 10 tonnes of fresh lychee to Thailand by sea on June 5, marking the first time the fresh fruit of Vietnam hit the shelves in Thailand.

Representatives of Ameii JSC said having Vietnam’s fresh lychee accepted in Thailand is a huge feat as Thailand is a capital of fresh fruit in the region, and this showed that Vietnamese lychee can compete with other fruits.

Each week, the company hopes to export over 20 tonnes of the summer fruit to supermarkets chain and stores in Thailand.

According to Hai Duong Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, by May 31, the province had harvested and marketed about 29,000 tonnes of litchi. Of these, about 15,000 tonnes are exported to China, Laos and Cambodia./.
