Piggy-backing on the China International Import Expo 2021, Pakistani mangoes are expected to enter the Chinese market on a large scale this summer. Last year, Pakistan held a mango tasting event in Shanghai; the feedback from the Chinese consumers was very positive.
Pakistan is the third-largest mango exporter in the world, and mango is known as the “King of Fruits” in Pakistan. The soil and climate conditions in Pakistan are particularly suitable for the growth of high-quality mangoes, which can be supplied for 5 to 6 months every year. Mango is also the main export fruit of Pakistan. In 2018, Pakistan’s mango production reached 1.9 million tons, ranking sixth in the world.
In May 2001, then Chinese Prime Minister Zhu Rongji visited Pakistan. He received all the Chinese Embassy staff, and we listened to his kind and humorous teachings. In his speech, he specially recommended Pakistan’s “egg mango”.
