Pakistan could increase mango exports by 200%

According to Shaikh Imtiaz Hussain, Chief Executive Officer of Imtiaz Enterprises and President of Pakistan Agriculture & Horticulture Forum, Pakistan has the potential to increase mango exports threefold. Shaikh Imtiaz Hussain said Pakistan is trying its best to bridge the gap between industry, academia and policymakers including all the stakeholders of agri-industry.

Pakistan ranks globally among the top 10 producers of mangoes. Pakistan produces about 1.8 million tons annually, but unfortunately, around 5% of them are being exported just because of controllable and uncontrollable losses.

Sharing figures on Pakistan’s mango exports, Shaikh Imtiaz Hussain said Pakistan exports around 100,000 tons of mangoes yearly valuing around US$ 100 million. But this number can grow exponentially if parties develop finished products with value addition. Calculations by the International Trade Centre project that Pakistan’s total mango exports have a potential to reach US$ 277 million.
