Over the past years, Vietnam has exported lychee to different foreign markets, including China, the U.S., Japan, the Republic of Korea, Australia, and the U.K.

Earlier this year, the US Agriculture Department granted codes to 18 lychee orchards in seven communes of Luc Ngan district while China recognized 36 local lychee orchards that meet the market standards.

During the week, there will be various activities to promote Luc Ngan lychee as well as other agricultural products of Bac Giang, according to the organizers.
