HA NOI (Biz Hub)— Do Kim Dung, the Fresh and Frozen Sourcing Manager at the METRO Singapore Trading Office, has highlighted the great potential of exporting fruits and vegetables to China and other countries.

"The first 23-tonne batch of Vietnamese dragon fruit shipped to Shanghai earlier this month had signalled the great potential of exporting quality fruit and vegetable products from Viet Nam to China and other countries," she stated.

During the last several months, METRO Cash&Carry Viet Nam, the METRO Singapore Trading Office and Viet Nam's agencies have joined hands to boost Vietnamese exports via the METRO network.

"This was the first trial order delivered by Red Dragon, a Vietnamese company," said Dung. "The volume of this order is small, but we hope it will grow within the next few years." — VNS
