Anhui's agricultural exports stood at $103 million in January, up 7.24 percent from the same period a year ago, said the provincial Department of Commerce.
The growth was largely contributed by industrial leaders as 22 agricultural companies based in the eastern Chinese province recorded more than $1 million in export volume each, or $49.91 million in total, representing a year-on-year rise of 49.91 percent.
Exports of traditional Chinese drugs, down feather, gluten, honey and sesame seeds rebound. Sesame, down and gluten exports surged 639.92 percent, 38.86 percent and 69.11 percent, respectively.
As one of the province's traditional exports, the tea leaf saw a 1.53 percent year-on-year fall in export volume in January.
Agricultural exports to European, American, South Korean and Japanese markets increased 13.01 percent year-on-year. Meanwhile, the province made remarkable progress in tapping African markets, with exports to Senegal, Togo and Guinea up 153.57 percent, 84.94 percent and 31.8 percent, respectively.
