The two-day 2022 Pakistan Mango Festival will be held in Dubai on July 1 and 2. A wide variety of mangoes will be showcased to traders and visitors from different countries. The first day is an invite-only event, where senior government officials from the UAE and Pakistan, dignitaries, ambassadors, business council members and trade missions will be shown over a dozen popular varieties of Pakistani mangoes. The second day is open to the public.
Visitors to the event, organised in partnership with Pakistan Consulate, Pakistan Business Council and Pakistan Association Dubai, will be entertained with mango-related games, competitions, food, shopping, cultural stalls and much more. The event will be held at Pakistan Association Dubai.
Pakistan is the world’s fifth-largest producer of mangoes after India, China, Thailand and Indonesia, producing around 1.8 million tons on average. In 2021, Pakistan exported 125,000 tons of mangoes; however, it’s expected that the production will drop by 50 per cent this year.
