It has been recently revealed that Pakistan, this year, will be exporting more mangos as compared to India. Both the countries are famous for the delicious yellow fruit but due to the ban which has been levied upon India by the European Union, Pakistan will be the sole provider of mango this time round.

Both the countries are famous for growing ‘the king of fruits’. Economically, however, mango is something where Pakistan has an edge over India. Last year Pakistan managed to export 100,000 tonnes of mango while India only managed to sell 56,000 tonnes of mango. This earned Pakistan $48.6 million while India managed to make $44.6 million.

The ban on India has been levied because one embargo, which was delivered to Europe, contained fruit flies. This did not only ruin fruit, but also four different types of vegetables.

Pakistan now fully understands that if they are able to learn from India’s mistake, then they can cash in on the opportunity.

Pakistan is now trying to figure out ways where they can get rid of fruit flies. It was recently revealed that Pakistani orchids have also been affected by these pests, but Pakistan is working hard to get rid of this problem so they can improve their exports.

Pakistan currently has the capacity to sell 40% of its total production of mango; however, this time they might be improving this number.
