In 2024, the All Pakistan Fruit and Vegetable Exporters Association has set a target of 100,000 metric tons of mango exports the current season. The export of mangoes commenced from May 20, 2024. With export of 100,000 metric ton of mangoes during FY2024, valuable foreign exchange of $90 million is likely to be generated.

Though major markets for mango exports are China, America, Turkey and Japan. Iran, Afghanistan and Central Asian states but markets such as the EU and the UK offer higher profitability through compliance with international standards of health and packaging.

If mangoes farmers are provided research-based solutions, such as new varieties of mangoes that are compatible with the climatic changes, Pakistan can boost foreign exchange through mango exports to the global high-end market.
