Vietnam to re-export fresh fruits, vegetables to EU

HANOI, May 8 - From June 30 this year, Vietnamese fresh fruits and vegetables will be granted quarantine certificates for export to the European Union (EU) market, according to the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development ( MARD) on Wednesday.

Nguyen Van Nga, head of MARD's Flora Quarantine Department, told local media that his department will re-grant quarantine certificates to fresh fruits and vegetables for export to the EU after more than one year of suspension.

In early 2012, the MARD decided not to grant quarantine certificates for export of five kinds of fresh fruits and vegetables to the EU after failing to meet EU's requirement for food safety.

Meanwhile, the MARD advised domestic fruit and vegetable exporters to purchase products from producers who have applied the Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) farming model.

According to the Vietnam Fruits and Vegetables Association ( Vinafruit), the country expected to earn 1 billion U.S. dollars from fruit and vegetable exports this year, up from last year's 829 million dollars.

In the first four months, fruit and vegetable exports reached 187 million dollars in value, a year on year increase of 10 percent.

Vietnamese fruits and vegetables were sold to more than 50 countries and regions, with China, the United States, EU and Japan being the main importers, according to the association.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
