Avocados have been listed as the export items in Myanmar’s National Export Strategy.

Myanmar Avocado Producer and Exporter Association are preparing to ship marketable Hass avocados to Dubai, the UAE and Singapore, said U Myo Nyunt, vice-chair of the association.
We have received a purchase order on Hass avocado from those countries. The association is making observations on prices between the offering price by those countries and the buying price from the growers.  It will be harvested in December and the association is planning to export the Hass avocado as per the purchase order.
“The trade partners from those countries have already sent purchase orders to us. At present, the price is still under negotiation. Only Hass avocado will be exported. Hass is the commercially important avocado variety in international markets. As the avocado will be abundantly harvested year over year, the association is trying to connect with international buyers. Avocados have been listed as the export items in Myanmar’s National Export Strategy. When we started to cultivate avocado of foreign origins, it was aimed for exports,” he elaborated.
Myanmar’s avocado industry has connected with trade partners from Dubai to export about 30 tonnes of avocado by air every 15 days. Similarly, approximately 30 tonnes of avocado will also be delivered to Singapore throughout the avocado season. Myanmar has planned to meet avocado demand from those countries. Furthermore, it is also gearing up for export market expansions. – Min Htet Aung (Mandalay Sub-Printing House)/GNLM
