Lao Cai (VNA) – Up to 1,560 tonnes of dragon fruits underwent customs clearance for export to China via the Lao Cai international border gate on February 17-18 (the second and third day of the Lunar New Year). 

Nguyen Quyet Chien, head of the Lao Cai international border gate customs office, said Anh Loc, Bao An and Tan HungThinh companies loaded the above dragon fruits onto 32 vans heading to China.

The fruits were sourced from orchards in the south central province of Binh Thuan and the Mekong Delta provinces of Soc Trang and Vinh Long.
