A Chinese delegation is in Zimbabwe to inspect citrus farms with a view to establishing if the quality of fruits meets China’s importation standards.

Head of delegation and entomologist at Guangdong Inspection Quarantine Technology Center Wu Jiajiao told Agriculture, Mechanization and Irrigation Development Minister Joseph Made that the team had visited many citrus farms around the country and was impressed by the quality of the fruits, the state run newspaper Herald reported Monday.

“This is part of the bio-security measures that are followed whenever we want to import agricultural products or animals from another country,” Wu said.

He said China was also interested in investigating the branding and packaging of the fruits.

“We are currently importing from foreign countries and Zimbabwe can also export to us if it meets our requirements,” he added. Enditem
