Despite the Covid-19 outbreaks, Thailand's fresh fruit export prospects remain promising this year as the appetite worldwide for Thai fruit is strong, particularly in China, Vietnam and Hong Kong.
According to Somdet Susomboon, director-general of the International Trade Promotion Department, the agency expects fresh fruit shipments to grow by 17% this year to 122 billion baht.
China is expected to retain the top spot as the leading export market for Thai fresh fruit, accounting for 70%, followed by Vietnam (12%), Hong Kong (10%) and others (8%).
