ISLAMABAD: President Dr Arif Alvi on Tuesday said with the best mango produce in the world, Pakistan had the potential to make a bigger export footprint of the “King of Fruits” by adopting proper agrarian techniques. “Introduction of mango’s new varieties through research, quality control and value addition can help Pakistan earn high revenues in the international markets,” the president said in his address at the Mango Festival here at the Aiwan-e-Sadr. The Mango Festival was organized by the Rahim Yar Khan Chamber of Commerce and Industries, and the Ministry of Commerce that showcased a wide assortment of local mangoes, ranging from the well-known varieties like Chaunsa, Sindhri, Dusehri and Anwar Ratol to the less known Coconut Ambri, Surkha Gulab and Samar Bahisht. President Alvi said Pakistan’s sweet mangoes could no doubt be presented before the world with great pride and mentioned in that regard his ‘mango diplomacy’ under which he had sent the gifts of mangoes to the rulers, presidents and prime ministers of different countries. The mango gifts were sent to 37 countries this year and to 17 last year, he added. The president stressed that Pakistan needed to take measures in quality presentation of food produce to boost the exports.
