Prince Charles, Prince of Wales, has described the Pakistani mangoes as “very tasty” and thanked President Arif Alvi for sending him the gift of mangoes.

The British heir-to-the-throne in a letter addressed to President Alvi said that he and his wife were appreciative of the excellent gift, a statement issued by the President’s Media Office said on Tuesday.

Prince Charles, in his letter, expressed his happiness on receiving the gift of best Pakistani mangoes.

The president under the ‘mango diplomacy’ had sent Pakistani mangoes as gift to the heads of states of various countries.

The initiative was aimed at introducing the fruit to new international markets in a bid to further boost export of Pakistani fruits and vegetables and highlight investment opportunities in the horticulture sector.

Pakistan ranks sixth in the world in terms of mango production and fifth in terms of mango exporting countries in the world having around 5% share.
