Coronavirus and fruit prices – Tajikistan banned food imports from China, Uzbekistan not yet

Chinese apple, pear and garlic from this day can not be delivered to the Tajik market

According to EastFruit experts, Tajikistan has decided to temporarily stop importing any food from China to avoid the entry of coronavirus into the country. This means that the Chinese apple, pear and garlic from this day can not be delivered to the Tajik market. Moreover, similar measures, according to our experts, can be taken by other countries of Central Asia – Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan. There are persistent rumors that the ban on food imports in these countries is being actively discussed, but no decisions have yet been voiced.

Earlier, Azerbaijan introduced the decision to ban food imports from China, and Russia closed the border with China in the Far East.

According to EastFruit experts, now Chinese suppliers are deploying cars with Chinese vegetables and fruits that were already on the road and were in Afghanistan. The import of Chinese products to Tajikistan also went through Kyrgyzstan, where a similar situation is observed – the machines are already returning.

If we talk about fruits and vegetables delivered from China to Tajikistan, the main categories are apple, pear, ginger, tangerines, and, in part, walnuts. Accordingly, the market expects prices for these goods to rise, since Chinese imported products were the cheapest.

Every year, in early spring, a lot of greenhouse tomatoes and cucumbers were also imported from China to Tajikistan. If the ban is not lifted before the supply starts, then these categories of goods can also rise in price, because Tajikistan, so far, does not provide itself with fully greenhouse vegetables.
