With the full launch of the China-Thailand free trade area, China's fruit export to Thailand has ushered in unprecedented opportunities. If China wants to make a significant breakthrough in Thailand's fruit product trade, it needs to improve the competitiveness of fruit products. The scale of fruit planting in China is second only to that of food and vegetables. However, China's fruit industry lacks competitive advantage in the Thai market, which will lead to a fruit production surplus. With the long-term downturn of export prices for China's fruit export, China's fruit export volume has been at a low level, occupying a small proportion of exports. With the improvement of Thailand's opening to the outside world, China's fruit export trade to Thailand has also developed rapidly. From the perspective of fruit export volume, Thailand is an important market for fruit export in Southeast Asia. Therefore, it is of great significance to study the impact of Thailand on China's trade in the export of fruits by sea.
