Hanoi – Vietnamese businesses which want to export medicinal herbs to China must submit information about growing areas and packaging establishments to the provincial Departments of Agriculture and Rural Development.
The departments were required to report to the Plant Protection Department under the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development by April 15, 2023.
The Vietnamese authority will the work with the General Administration of Customs of China (GACC) to grant export licences to eligible exporters.
According to the Plant Protection Department, GACC has informed it about China’s plan to review the supervision system for exported medicinal herbs and the registration of enterprises which produce, process and preserve medicinal herbs for export to China.
To meet the requirements of the Chinese side and minimise its impacts on the export of Vietnamese medicinal herbs to the market, the Plant Protection Department asked agencies to review the growing areas and packing facilities of medicinal herbs.

I appreciate the efforts of the Vietnamese government in supporting businesses, but the authorities can and should do more to further develop the economy.
