The sweet smell of Thai mangoes for sale at fruit markets across china signal a remarkable shift in the Asia-Pacific fruit trade. As China’s Belt and Road Initiative strengthens economic ties across the region, fruit exports from tropical Thailand to China are booming.
Thailand, long famed as the “Fruit Basket of Asia,” is now increasingly becoming China’s fruit bowl. By the end of 2023, Thailand’s Ministry of Commerce predicts the country will exported over 4 million tons of fruit, 77% of which will be destined for China.
This represents a seismic shift from just five years ago, when less than half of Thailand’s fruit exports went to its northern neighbor. But with improving trade relations, logistics, and demand, China’s share skyrocketed to nearly 90% of Thailand’s total fruit exports by 2022.
