NY427 - Nursery Export Markets in Asia

The Tasmanian nursery growers Export Group is a network formed in may 1994 to research and develop export markets for nursery products. A preliminary survey of Asian nursery markets indicated that a demand for imported plants existed, but did not provide detailed information on desirable plants or market specifications. Consequently, representatives of the group visited Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Singapore in May 1995 to follow the market trail from airport quarantine inspection to retail nursery.
