Under their MoU, the two parties will work together to develop CHINA FRUIT LOGISTICA as China’s leading national fresh fruit and vegetable trade show in compliance with Chinese laws.

Implementing a national strategy to import high quality and safe fruits and to foster export of high-quality Chinese fruit is another priority for the two parties.
