AvocadoChilean authorities in China have signed the final protocol allowing avocado exports into the Asian country.


Chilean Fruit Exporters Association (ASOEX) president Ronald Bown told www.freshfruitportal.com the signing was being treated as the initialization of the document and would be formally signed by Chilean Agriculture Minister Carlos Furche during his visit to China in early September.

The ASOEX representative explained the initial protocol for Chilean avocado exports to China was a result of joint efforts between the Chilean public and private sectors, represented by the Ministry of Agriculture, the Agricultural and Livestock Service (SAG) and the Chilean Embassy in China.

Now all that remains is for the protocols to be signed by the agricultural ministries from both nations to make the agreement official, although avocado exports can begin from the date shown on the initial document.

The protocol will last for two years and states that the Chilean avocados must come from production areas free of fruit flies and meet Chinese phytosanitary regulations.
