Myanmar’s pomelo planned to export to China market

Myanmar’s pomelo is being planned to be exported to China, according to the Myanmar Pomelo Producers and Exporters Association.

Over 12 tonnes of pomelo were exported to Singapore in the 2014-2015 fiscal year. The vast market of China is expected to create space for Myanmar’s pomelo. Myanmar’s mangoes have already influenced China market. Efforts will be similarly be exerted for Myanmar’s pomelo to penetrate the international market, said U Win Shwe, the chairperson of the aforementioned association. Pomelo growers will be offered courses to receive a Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) certificate so that the pomelo export market expand to the European Union and European countries, it is learnt. “The Ministry of Planning and Finance will provide the necessary assistance to be able to export our vegetables and fruits cultivated under good agricultural practices”, said U Soe Than Mindin, the chair of the Myanmar Fruit, Flower and Vegetable Producers and Exporters Association (MFVP).

Pomelo plantations need to expand to meet the market’s demand. There are over 3,000 acres of pomelo plantations in Myanmar. The pomelo is mainly grown in Mon State and also in Kayin State, Bago, Yangon, Ayeyawady and Mandalay regions, it is learnt.
