According to Vietnamnet, Vietnam's overall fruit and vegetable imports fell 42 percent to 376.9 million USD, but imports from several countries such as New Zealand, the US and Korea increased.
In the same period last year the US had accounted for only 10 percent of imports.
Apples, grapes and cherries are among the biggest imports from that country.
Vietnam is also a substantial exporter of vegetables and fruits, and in the first four months earned 1.2 billion USD these products, a 12.5 percent drop. ■
