Vietnam to tighten control over imported fruits

Over the public concern of imported apples and pears coated with dangerous chemicals that help them to stay firm for months, Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Cao Duc Phat yesterday said that his Ministry has ordered related agencies to oversee imported fruits before entering the country.

The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development asked to tighten control over imported China fruits. Thousands of preservatives are available in markets; accordingly, related agencies should access the risk of all in general.

Before fruits are allowed to import into Vietnam, related agencies of two countries have worked together to exchange the farming procedure documents then if these fruits are transported to the border gates, responsible agencies must check over the documents once again.
