China's top farm product export province sets new record

Updated 2017-01-22 09:33:28 Xinhua

Shandong Province in east China set a new record of exporting farm products worth 107.5 billion yuan (about 15.6 billion U.S. dollars) in 2016, according to the provincial government.

Shandong has been the country's top agricultural product exporter for the past 18 years. Shandong's farm exports, accounting for nearly a quarter of the nation's total, grew by 13.1 percent year on year in 2016.

Top export products from the province are vegetables, freshwater and seafood products, while fresh and dried fruits and potato products are gaining popularity.

The major export destinations are Southeast Asian countries, Japan, and the Republic of Korea.

Provincial officials say measures are in place to ensure food safety, which helps Shandong farm exports gain bigger global market shares.
