Uzbekistan Lemons Officially Approved by China’s Customs Authority. For more information on export to China, please call SINOLOBEN, service Email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
According to the Announcement No. 95 of the General Administration of China’s Customs (GACC) in 2021, from Nov. 22, 2021, lemons (Latin name: citrus limon) imports from Uzbekistan's lemon producing areas that meet the relevant requirements will be allowed.
The orchard (greenhouse) and packaging plant of lemons exported to China must be filed by Uzbekistan Plant Inspection and Quarantine Bureau and registered with the approval of the GACC. The registration information shall include the name, address and registration number, so as to accurately trace the source when the exported goods do not meet the relevant requirement. Currently, GACC website does not have a list of lemon orchards and packaging plants exported from Uzbekistan to China.
Before the export season of the first year, Uzbekistan and China will jointly review the registered orchards and packaging plants Before the export season each year, Uzbekistan provides the Chinese with a list of registrations. The list of approved enterprises can be found on the GACC website. After passing the quarantine, the Uzbek side shall issue a phytosanitary certificate with a statement attached. When lemons arrive at the port of entry in China, the Chinese Customs shall check whether the imported lemons have obtained the "Entry Animal and Plant Quarantine Permit" as required.
China and Uzbekistan signed the “Protocol of Phytosanitary Requirements for the Export of Uzbek Lemons to China” in Aug. this year. Lemons have thus become Uzbekistan’s fourth type of fruit permitted to enter China following cherries, melons and pomegranates. Negotiations for several other fruit items such as table grapes, plums, persimmons and peaches are also reportedly underway.
Uzbekistan is the largest fresh fruit and vegetable producer in Central Asia, and the country’s produce exports extend to nearly 60 countries and regions. Since 2017, Uzbekistan’s agricultural industry has been attaching great importance to exploring and developing the Chinese market to reduce its reliance on trade with Russia. As of March 2021, approximately 500 Uzbek companies were engaged in exports to China. In 2020, Uzbekistan exported a total of 7,100 tons or $8.6 million of lemons.
