Indian mangoes are ready to hit the American market after easing the ban on export of mangoes. �Indian mangoes are just a few days away from shipment to the U.S,� said U.S. Trade representative Susan Shwab who was here to attend the India-U.S Trade Policy Forum and G-4 and G-6 meeting of the World Trade Organization. �I am looking forward to see Indian mangoes being sold in the U.S market,� she added.

Addressing the conference Karan Bhatia, U.S. Deputy Trade Representative said that the U.S has ministerial-chaired forum only with the EU, China and India. He also said that the country is among the high priority nations for enhancing the U.S. trade and wants to double their trade within three years.

As a result of the efforts of the forum, the present bilateral trade of $30 billion would be opened for almond trade too. U.S- India Business Council predicts that Indian mangoes would dominate the 2.5 lakhs tonne U.S market once the exports picks up.

Although Mexican mangoes are dominating the U.S market presently, the exporters also see opportunity in the East, particularly in Japan. Indian exporters plan to hold a mango promotion campaign in Japan between May 23 and May 28.
