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.
