The Fruits and Vegetables Working Group for the opening of new export markets holds its 19th meeting –

The Fruits and Vegetables Working Group that is made up of the heads of the administrations involved in the opening of new markets, including FEPEX, has held its 19th meeting to review the status of the openings that are being worked on.
The meeting was held on November 29, and the group gave information on priority files, i.e. those openings that are of special interest to Spanish exporters due to their potential importers. This group includes the work being done, for example, to open the United States market for cherry, nectarine, plum, pears, and apples. It also includes the file to open Japan for Spanish citrus and kaki. In Latin America, the group is working to open Peru, Mexico, Colombia, Argentina, and Chile, among other markets.
Currently, the Fruits and Vegetables Working Group is working with more than 18 countries in the priority-files group and more than 11 countries in the non-priority-files group. In addition, one or more products can be negotiated with a country at the same time. Thus, the opening process for a fruit or vegetable and a country can last 3 to 5 years.
Since the process begins, the heads of the Ministry of Agriculture and the heads of the Secretary of Commerce initiate contacts with the various agencies of the third country, they develop protocols as required by the countries, reach a consensus with the sector, responds to the country’s requests, and so on. The opening of a new market also involves an economic outlay. For example, producers and associations pay the trips made by foreign inspectors who visit Spanish farms to verify in situ that the requirements are met.
