China clears Brazilian melon imports

The General Administration of Customs of China (GACC) authorised the import of melon from Brazil, in what constitutes the first agreement of both countries on this fruit. China consumes approximately half of melon world production, equivalent to 17 million tons in 2017, and the Brazilian harvest coincides with the low season in China. In 2018, Brazil exported around 200 thousand tons of melon to USA, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, Russia and the European Union.
