As overseas demand has been low, Myanmar fruit market has to rely on local demand, said an official from Myanmar Fruit, Flower and Vegetable Producers and Exporters Association.

“The fruit market is not doing well. It has been about three years that mango market has been dull, resulting from falling demand and being unable to export. Especially, this is the watermelon harvest season, but exporters are not able to export so trading has to rely more on domestic demand,” he said.

With the purpose of enhancing socioeconomic development and increasing income of fruit and flower growers and those who have passion in growing fruit and flower, Yangon Region Minister Vegetables, Fruits and Horticulture Exhibition and Competition is scheduled to take place in Yangon Region.

The event will feature 22 kinds of competitions and contestants are invited. In commemoration of the 76th Independence Day, the Yangon Region Government will host the exhibition, which was suspended due to Covid-19, from 1 January to 7 January 2024 atMalarmyaing Island, Kandawgyi Natural Park in Bahan township.
