Ethiopian authorities increased the minimum price threshold up to 40% for vegetables and fruits exported to Djibouti ports. In August 2022, authorities backpedaled the decision to raise the price threshold for horticultural products due to complaints lodged by the Djibouti government. Ethiopia exports 44 types of vegetables and fruits. However, horticulture has been plagued with low quality production and bottle-necked trade logistics, according to the ministry of agriculture. Djibouti has been the main export destination for Ethiopia's fruits and vegetables, accounting for over 70% of shipments.
