Fruit is one of the major agricultural products in Thailand. The annual Thai fruit export revenue exceeds one billion US dollars. Thailand has a wide variety of fruits and is well received by consumers both at home and abroad. Thailand’s fruit export partners include China, Japan. United States and LU countries. Especially in China, the signing of zero-tariff agreements between China and Thailand for fruit and vegetable products in October 2003 and the formal establishment of the China-ASEAN Free Trade Area by 2010 have greatly promoted the development of fruit trade between the two sides. The import and export volume of China-ASEAN fruit trade both showed a rapid growth trend, and both sides have taken an increasingly important position in their respective fruit import and export markets. From 2012 to 2014. China has been Thailand’s first fresh fruit exporter. However, it is worth noting that Thai fruits face many obstacles and competitors in the Chinese market, especially the competition of local fruits in Vietnam and China.
