Pakistan has already surpassed its mango export target by 45,000 tons this season. The All Pakistan Fruit & Vegetable Exporters, Importers & Merchants Association (PFVA) states that the country has exported 125,000 tons of mangoes so far this season, worth US$72 million. The original target had been revised downwards in light of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Profit.pakistantoday.com.pk reports PFVA Patron-in-Chief, Waheed Ahmed, as saying:
“The target was achieved after PFVA adopted an aggressive strategy coupled with timely decisions taken by the federal government. In the next 45 days, an additional mango export of 25,000 tons is expected.”
Afghanistan (46,276 tons) has emerged as Pakistan’s top mango export destination for the current season, while the UAE (33,000 tons), Iran (18,000 tons) and Oman (11,500 tons) also remain prominent international markets.
