HOHHOT, April 22 (Xinhua) — China’s exports of fresh vegetables and
fruits to Mongolia saw robust growth in the first quarter of this year,
according to customs figures. The goods passed through Erenhot, the
largest land port on the border between China and Mongolia.
Over 26,000 tonnes of fruits and vegetables were exported via the
port during the period, registering an increase of 25.1 percent year on
year. The total export value hit 34.8 million yuan (5.36 million U.S.
dollars), an increase of 33.6 percent over the same period last year.
The land port of Erenhot in north China’s Inner Mongolia Autonomous
Region is 714 km away from the Mongolian capital of Ulan Bator. More
than 80 percent of fresh fruits and vegetables in the Mongolian market
are Chinese exports supplied via Erenhot.
Yang Yuchao from the Erenhot customs said the fruit and vegetable
exports are of good quality and rich in variety, and that they enrich
the dining tables of Mongolian people.
He said the customs bureau has opened a “green channel for
agricultural and sideline products,” which allows fresh fruits and
vegetables to pass through customs at the fastest possible speed.
Chinese trade firms send fresh goods in refrigerated trucks to the
customs, where the freight is reloaded onto trains to travel to
Yang said that Chinese exports of fresh fruits and vegetables to
Mongolia have not been affected by the recent resurgence of COVID-19
cases in Mongolia. Enditem
