Exploring exports: Chinese envoy visits Davao durian farm

Chinese Ambassador to the Philippines Huang Xilian recently flew to Davao City to visit a durian farm as talks continue on increasing fruit exports to the mainland.

Officials from the Bureau of Customs – Port of Davao accompanied the foreign envoy to Belviz Durian Farm in the Calinan area.

Huang seemed to love the fruit himself, personally smelling its iconic odor through his mask across the durian varieties presented to him.

Should the deal proceed, shipments from Davao will be sent from the local port and pass through local Customs.
