Of the figure, about 3.26 trillion VND was from lychee sales and the remaining from support services.

The province exported 72,250 tonnes of lychees, earning 126.8 million USD. Bac Giang’s lychees were mainly shipped to China, with 71,250 tonnes and 125 million USD.

The remaining 1,000 tonnes, worth 1.8 million USD, were exported to several EU countries, Russia, Singapore, Thailand, Australia, the US, Canada, Japan and the Republic of Korea. 

Bac Giang’s specialty fruit has also been consumed across the country, especially Hanoi, Quang Ninh, Hai Phong, Hue, Da Nang, Ho Chi Minh City, and southern provinces via wholesale markets, trade centres and supermarkets.

This year, the lychee prices are relatively stable, ranging from 8,000 VND to 25,000 VND per kilogram. Lychees for export are sold at between 15,000 VND and 25,000 VND per kilogram.

As the main harvest season will end in the next 10-15 days, with an output equivalent to 30 percent of the total production, authorities recommended people use safe plant protection chemicals to ensure the best quality, prestige and trademark of Bac Giang lychees.

Lychee is one of the 52 key agricultural products of Bac Giang, a list approved by local authorities in 2017.

About 13,500ha of lychee trees in Bac Giang are farmed under VietGAP standards with an estimated output of 90,000 tonnes. Of that area, 218ha with more than 10,000 tonnes of lychees are cultivated under GlobalGAP standards and eligible for export to demanding markets.

Total lychee output in the province is expected at 150,000 – 180,000 tonnes in 2018.
