LycheesAccording to the Office of Agriculture and Rural Development of Luc Ngan District in Vietnam's northern Bac Giang province, lychee farmers had a bumper crop this year.


Bac Giang has the largest area cultivated to leech in the whole country. More than 17,500 hectares cultivated to leech in Bac Giang is expected to produce some 90,000 tons in 2014.

Luc Ngan authorities are coordinating with relevant agencies to apply the necessary technology to prolong the storage period of lychees in order to boost exports to new overseas markets.

Vietnam's General Customs has instructed its personnel in northern Lang Son, Lao Cai and Ha Giang provinces to facilitate procedures for the export of this succulent fruit to China.

Apart from China, the Vietnamese government is exploring more ways to help farmers sell their products to the international market.

According to Vietnam's Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC), as many as 10 tons of Vietnamese lychees are expected to be exported to Japan early this month.

MIC Minister Nguyen Quan said that if the quality of the Vietnamese lychees would pass the sanitary requirements of the Japanese government, Vietnam can increase its lychees export to that country in the coming years.
