Update: 09:33 | 16/05/2019

The Mekong Delta province of An Giang will export about 5-10 tonnes of mangoes to the US in June 2019, according to deputy director of the provincial Department of Agriculture and Rural Development Lu Cam Khuong.

In recent years, local farmers have shifted from growing rice to other crops, hence, the cultivating area for fruits, including mangoes, has significantly increased.

However, the province has focused on the domestic market and exports to China.

Director of the An Giang Department of Agriculture and Rural Development Nguyen Sy Lam said to develop the local mango brand, the department will accelerate the issuance of codes to some growing areas in Cho Moi, An Phu, Tri Ton, Tinh Bien districts, Tan Chau town and Long Xuyen city.

Eighteen export codes have been issued for mango growing areas in An Giang with a total area of nearly 244 hectares.

According to the provincial Statistics Office, An Giang had nearly 9,700 hectares of mangoes in 2018.
