“What scares me the most are syringes without caps. Even though it hurts to touch them, I still have to collect them all,” said Thuong, as he stood in waist-deep filth, holding up small plastic syringe, its needle still tinged with crimson traces of blood. Thuong is one of thousands of sanitation workers in Saigon whose daily job is to go down into noxious, toxic sewers and clean up the trash that an unfeeling population dumps there. Without people like him, every time it pours, rainwater would overload the city’s sewage systems and send waste of all kinds back to the surface. At 54, Thuong has spent 22 years in the job. His face weary, his hair unkempt, he let out a sigh. “Everyone wants an easy job. But if they all do, who’s going to take care of the trash?” As I type out these words, I shudder to recall the pungent stench shoving its way into my nose as I made my way down to a sewer in the city a few days before.

The tale of the tropical fruit Some ten years ago, a New Zealander living in a provincial town would hardly have known what dragon fruit tasted like, let alone other exotic fruits like rambutan. Yet now, dragon fruit imported from Vietnam has become exceedingly popular at provincial supermarkets in New Zealand, according to Emmet McElhatton, commercial manager of the New Zealand Government-to-Government Partnerships Office (G2G Know-How). McElhatton said that the tropical fruit market in New Zealand is rapidly growing, thanks to the exposure to new flavours that Kiwi travellers have gained after their visits to tropical destinations. “[Our] supermarkets are more willing now to stock different products and consumers are really demanding variety,” McElhatton said. For Vietnamese fruit exporters, the commercial manager stressed that it is important to “get the flavour profile right for all consumers” when looking to export their fresh produce to New Zealand. … [Read more...] about International know how to help local fruit exports
