Thailand has reached a record of exporting more than 500,000 tons of durians to China within six months this year, Government spokesperson Thanakorn Wangboonkongchana revealed today, June 24th.

The spokesperson said that Prime Minister Prayut Chan-O’Cha was pleased that the government agencies between Thailand and China have jointly and continually expanded the Thai fruit export channels and that the Chinese Ambassador was confident in the quality standards of Thai durian after visiting an orchard in Chanthaburi and Rayong.

According to the record, more than 509,000 tons of durians were exported to China in the period between February 1st and June 17th, worth a total value of 54,418.45 million baht.
