The congress was attended by delegates from all over the country to talk about the different issues regarding the mango industry and how to expand as the major export product of the country.

This year, the mango congress was themed “Proficiency on Mango Productivity, Quality and Profitability in the Global Market.”

The mango industry is constantly being evaluated to analyze and elevate its potential to be a major export in the global market. Through this congress, the industry is given a broader and newer direction.
