U.S. Consul General Brian Heath visited a mango farm in Tando Hafiz Shah to inspect automated mango graders and processors provided by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). USAID Deputy Mission Director Denise Herbol and Deputy Provincial Director Patrick Brady were also present.

“The United States is helping Pakistan boost domestic and international sales of Pakistani agricultural products, including mangoes,” said Consul General Heath. “We want to make Pakistani mangoes as competitive as they can be in international markets,” he said. Pakistan is the fifth largest mango-producing country in the world, but exports less than 8 percent of its production. “Pakistani mango exports to the U.S. doubled last year, setting a record at 184 metric tons, and there is even more potential in this area,” said Mr. Heath.
