Australia bans Philippine bananas and other fruit imports due to its claims of phytosanitary threats.
The pytosanitary claims I believe are unfounded as New Zealand also and continues to import the same Philippine bananas and pineapples. (New Zealand by the way has very strict phytosanitary regulations.) I believe other Filipino fruits are exported to 'developed' nations without this phystosanitary issue.
This import ban is just another barrier to free trade. This is unfair.
Selfish interests still abound.
