Vietnamese Charge d'Affaires in Japan Nguyen Truong Son said Vietnamese red dragon fruits now reach Japanese consumers for the first time during the fair: “The Japanese market holds great potential for Vietnamese goods. This is the first time Vietnam’s red dragon fruit was introduced at the international fair in Japan. In recent weeks, Vietnam’s agricultural products have been penetrating the Japanese market, earning a turnover of around 2.5 million USD”.
