AHEIA has successfully completed the first phase of the ATMAC project awarded to them by the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources. The project - ‘Bilateral Trade Facilitation through Import Value Chain Development and Capacity Building’, aims to support bilateral trade participation with Vietnam and China.
As a result of phase 1 of the project, AHEIA has produced the following resources:
Exporting Dragonfruit to Australia from Vietnam:
• Marketing Vietnamese dragon fruit in Australia
A guide to understanding the market potential for Vietnamese dragon fruit in Australia
• Tiếp thị thanh long Việt Nam tại Úc
Một hướng dẫn để hiểu về tiềm năng của thanh long Việt Nam tại thị trường Úc
Exporting Pears to Australia from China:
• Exporting Pears to Australia from Hebei, Shaanxi and Shandong Provinces
Understanding Australia’s import requirements for Pears imported from Hebei, Shaanxi and Shandong Provinces
We seek the participation of members that import fresh fruit from either China or Vietnam to collaborate on Phase 2 of the project:
• Participants will benefit from a tailored intervention that will identify, and take steps to rectify, deficiencies in postharvest processing, packaging, cold-chain and logistics in the fresh produce value chains to improve product out-turn in Australia.
• We will be working in partnership with Steritech, the sole provider of phytosanitary irradiation services in the Australian market, who will provide technical support, participate in value chain interventions and contribute their expertise to the process. Please contact AHEIA directly for more information.
