China Agrees To Prioritize Market Access For Australian Blueberries
Australia and China have agreed to new horticulture market access priorities that will allow future exports of blueberries to the Asian country, Australia’s Ministry of Agriculture has announced. The inclusion of blueberries on the priority list will progress after the existing access priority of mainland apples.The Agreement marks an extraordinary and revolutionary leave in China’s fruit market.
Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Agriculture and Water Resources, Barnaby Joyce, said the agreement would improve Australia’s horticultural market access and support the trade relationship between the two countries.“The new agreement will commence following completion of summer-fruit protocols under the previous “four and four agreements”.“Technical market access negotiations are scientifically complex and do take time, as each country looks to safeguard its national biosecurity interests and food safety standards.”
Assistant Minister to the Deputy Prime Minister, Luke Hartsuyker, said the new agreement would build on market access achievements delivered under the previous four and four agreements.
“The previous agreements supported access for Australian table grapes, and cherries, with nectarines completed and progress are being made on access for other summer fruits—peaches, plums and apricots,” Hartsuyker said. 
Assistant Minister for Agriculture and Water Resources, Senator Anne Ruston, said China is one of Australia’s most important trading partners and this is welcome news for our blueberry and apple industries.
Australia exported AUD$8.9 million worth of blueberries to all destinations and AUD$4.4 million to Hong Kong in calendar year 2016.
China market access for Australian cherries was gained in 2013, nectarines in 2016 and access for other summerfruits – peaches, plums and apricots – is currently being negotiated.
