A request was received from Indonesia to allow the importation of fresh salacca fruit into New Zealand. A risk analysis had already been completed by the Australian Department of Agriculture (DoA) for the importation of salacca fruit from Indonesia to Australia. This was used as a starting point for the New Zealand risk analysis. Three genera of mealybugs and two species of fungi were found to be non-negligible risks to New Zealand from this pathway, so additional measures may be warranted.
