In 2020, the fruit and vegetable sector earned 327 billion USD from export activities, in which mango contributed over 180 million USD, according to the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development’s latest report.

Of the revenue from mango exports, export turnover to China accounted for the majority with 84%, equivalent to 152 million USD, while the rest was from Russia (8.3 million USD), the US (4.61 million USD), the Republic of Korea, the EU and Australia.

In the US, in spite of a sharp increase in export value over the past few years, Vietnam is just the 14th largest mango supplier in 2020 with 2,100 tons, valued at 4.61 million USD, up 66% in volume and 70.1% in value against 2019. The US imported a large volume of frozen mango from Vietnam in 2020 at 1,150 tons, up 38.16% against last year, accounting for 54.76% of the total mango of all kinds imported from Vietnam.

Average import price of mango from Vietnam was high at 2.2 USD per kilogram, up 2.5% against 2019. However, the import proportion from Vietnam was still low, accounting for only 0.3% of all imported mangoes in the US.

Vietnam now has about 87,000 hectares of mango, of which the Mekong Delta accounts for 48%. Dong Thap province now has an area of about 12,171 hectares of mango, the largest in the Mekong Delta, with annual production of 124,000 tons./.
