A mango industry official has said that Pakistan’s mango exports have exceeded the 100,000 tons mark after eight years. This is still less than 7% of the total production.
The former chairman of the Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce and Industry’s standing committee on horticulture exports said that mango exports should reach around 120,000 tons before the season ends this September.
Mango exports last year amounted to 80,000 tons but in 2011/12 exports reached 100,000 tons. The latest export figures did not include unofficial trade with Iran and Afghanistan.
