The article said that in 2020, Vietnam’s mango export turnover reached 180.8 million USD and the figure increased to 310 million USD in 2021. By 2030, the country aims to double its export turnover to 650 million USD.

The article quoted the Vietnamese Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development as saying that Vietnam is the 13th largest mango producer in the world, with an output of about 893,000 tons in 2020. In 2021, the country exported over 600,000 tons of mangoes with export turnover increasing 1.7 times compared to the previous year.

The country uses about 87,000 hectares of land to grow mangoes and many low-yielding rice farmers have switched to growing this fruit, applying VietGAP, GlobalGAP standards and advanced techniques to produce high-quality mangoes.

Currently, Vietnamese mangoes are exported to 53 countries and territories, with the largest market still being China, accounting for 83.95%./.
