VGP – Viet Nam and New Zealand on May 28 signed an official assurance program for the export of Vietnamese dragon fruit, making it the first and only country approved to sell the fruit in New Zealand.

Speaking at the signing ceremony, New Zealand Ambassador to Viet Nam Haike Manning expressed his hope that imported dragon fruit will arrive at port in New Zealand soon, so that local consumers can start enjoying the delicious tropical specialty.
