Some Twitter users also suggested to High Commissioner to put the knife and fork down if you want to enjoy Pakistani mangoes in Pakistani style.
Pakistan is the sixth world’s largest exporter of mangoes. In Pakistan, you will find more than 50 types of mangoes while all over the world there are more than 1,000 varieties of mangoes. With the latest technique used by farmers, there are more varieties coming to the market.
Pakistani mangoes are not just popular in Asia and Europe but also in Australia. High Commissioner also revealed this via the tweet. Not just Australian High Commissioner but various other diplomats also share their love towards Pakistani aam.
This year the mango business was sticky in Pakistan because of locust attack, lack of labors due to coronavirus and climate. In order to boost the mangoes trade with foreign countries, Pakistan International Airlines reduced the custom charges for those who wanted to export the mangoes.
