Last year, Vietnam’s mango exports earned US$180 million in foreign exchange. The planting area of mango in the Jiulong River Delta alone amounts to more than 47,000 hectares, with a total output of 567,000 tons.
At present, there are more than 1,700 hectares of mango cultivation in Vietnam adopting the Vietnam Good Agricultural Practice (VietGap) certification standard and the Global Good Agricultural Practice Standard (GLOBAL GAP).
Chen Qingnan, Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, believes:“Small and medium-sized processing and storage bases must be built to build a logistics system from rural to urban. We have always been concerned about the mechanization of mango storage and harvesting in order to reduce costs. Enhance the value of mangoes. The standards we set for export are also applicable to domestic supermarkets.” (End)
