Pakistan Mango export likely to boost up

KARACHI: Export of Pakistan's Mango to European and U.S. Market is likely to boost as the ban on India's Alphonsos has presented Pakistan with a chance to widen the gap, ARY News reported.

The embargo on India came into force on May 1 after many shipments were found to contain fruit flies and also affected four types of vegetable. 

Mango  is a contentious matter regionally, with both countries proclaiming it a national treasure and fighting over whose specimens are superior. 

Economically, at least, mango exports are one area where Pakistan appears to have a slight edge. According to respective official figures, Pakistan last year exported around 100,000 tonnes for a revenue of $48.6 million over India's 56,000 tonnes for $44.6 million. 

But a European Union (EU) ban on India has provided Pakistan a chance to heighten its export for the current season.

According to the official website of Trade Ministry, Mango growers can start export from May 25.
