Fruits_and_VeggiesPhilippine Ambassador Bataclan meets with Director of the European Center

for Fruits and Vegetables

13 October 2011 - As part of the Philippine government's continuous efforts to promote the export of Philippine goods to Europe, H.E. Victoria Bataclan, Philippine Ambassador to Belgium & Luxembourg and Head of the Philippine Mission to the European Union, paid a visit to the European Center for Fruits and Vegetables in Brussels to meet with the Center's director,       Mr. Thierry Nuttin, and to visit the site that has been said to be the only one of its kind in Europe. In the meeting, she shared with Mr. Nuttin her vision of tapping all possible avenues to increase the trade of Philippine goods in Europe.

The Ambassador also conveyed her desire to increase Philippine exports of agricultural products noting the inroads made by the Philippines in technology, innovation and research.

The Ambassador was accompanied by Mr. Jose Laquian, Philippine Agricultural Attaché to the European Union, and Mr. Celso Enriquez, Team Leader for the fruits and vegetable sector of the USAID Growth with Equity in Mindanao (USAID-GEM) Program. The USAID-GEM program - whose general aim, among others, is to accelerate economic growth in Mindanao and to assure that as many people as possible can equally benefit from this growth - had sent its own representatives from the Philippines to visit the center, to explore market opportunities for Philippine exotic and tropical fruits, as well as other produce.

The European Center for Fruits and Vegetables, established in 1981, is a 13-hectare world-class integrated supply chain facility where first-grade quality fruits and vegetables from around the world are stored, showcased and traded. Having a total of 28 importers and exporters, the Center boasts of an annual sales turnover of 500 million euros and 950,000 metric tons.END.
