Pakistan has set new record by exporting more than 100,000 tons of mangoes this season. As world demand is increasing, the nation’s growers were able to break all previous eight years' export records.
Chief of Pakistan Fruit and Vegetable Association, Waheed Ahmed, said that today, Pakistan was full of hope and confidence that in coming years they would get more export volumes as government providing new harvesting techniques in this filed to meet the international standards.
He said Pakistani exports have shown a boost this year, apparently due to plunge in the rupee and better export policy initiatives by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government, and that the devaluation of Pakistani currency gave a great benefit to Mango exporters.
He added that ambassadors also played a pivotal role in promotion of Pakistani mangoes in other country's markets and if promotion continued they would get more positive and fruitful results in future. The Gulf countries, United Arab Emirates, Saudia Arab and European countries were major buyers of Pakistani mangoes this year.
