Import Health Standard Commodity Sub-class: Fresh Fruit/Vegetables Lychee, (Litchi chinensis) from Chinese Taipei.

MPI is reviewing the phytosanitary measures on the fresh lychee from Chinese Taipei to New Zealand pathway and are proposing to amend the cold treatment schedule for lychee imported from Chinese Taipei.
