Trade will have a more significant impact on the Australian apple and pear industry in the future as Biosecurity
Australia has agreed that apples can be imported into Australia from New Zealand under strict quarantine conditions.

There are many biosecurity agencies operating in Australia and a web portal has been established to make it easier to access information from those agencies. The Australian Biosecurity Intelligence Network can be accessed at www.abin.org.au.
Governments around the world impose different conditions on the access of fresh fruit and vegetables.
