NANNING, May 21 (Xinhua) -- The first batch of fresh mangoes exported from Cambodia directly to China arrived at the Qinzhou Port in south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region on Friday.
Transported in six containers, the mangoes will be sold in markets in Beijing, Henan, Liaoning, Zhejiang, Shandong and other regions across China.
The shipment reflects the growing agricultural cooperation between the two countries, with mangoes the second fruit after bananas to be directly exported from Cambodia to China.
The Qinzhou Port is a key point on the New International Land-Sea Trade Corridor and along the Belt and Road. In recent years, the port has opened several fruit shipping express lines linking China with Thailand, Vietnam and other Southeast Asian countries to facilitate agricultural products' exports to China, said Chen Silu, general manager of the Beibu Gulf Port Group.
In the future, the port will open more similar express lines, providing a convenient customs clearance point for Southeast Asian fruits to enter China and even be exported to central and eastern European markets, said Chen. Enditem
