Pakistan to export $70 million mangoes this year

FE Online Report
Pakistan is likely to export mangoes worth $68-$70 million in this year, according to Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FPCCI).

The FPCCI’s regional chairman on horticulture exports committee, Ahmad Jawad has said that the country could earn $ 68- $70 million by exporting mangoes in this year.

He also mentioned that a large number of orders were received from Western and Middle Eastern markets, according to a news report published in Business Recorder. 

In a statement on Saturday he also said that some 128,000 tonnes mangoes worth $ 68 million were exported in past year. 

The country also received orders from Hong Kong, Singapore, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia and South Korea. 

Though for the first time Indian mango exporters had entered South Korean markets, the importers had issues with Indian quality and packaging, he added. 

Mr Jawad was of the view that Pakistan could easily penetrate deeper into the EU market where demand for Indian mangoes was on the decline following growing complaints about India's famous Alphonso variety.
