Mangoes have not been exported from India to the US for the last two years. Kovid circumstances were the main obstacle to this. This was mainly due to the fact that inspectors from US agencies visiting India to certify export products were banned from traveling due to the Kovid 19 Pandemic. They had not visited India during the summers of 2020 and 2021.
“On the basis of the 12th India US Trade Policy Forum Meeting held on 23 November 2021, the Ministry of Agriculture and Agrarian Welfare and the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) signed a framework agreement for the implementation of the 2 Vs 2 Agri Market,” the Ministry said.
The new agreement includes scrutiny of Indian mangoes, pomegranates and pomegranate stalks, as well as US cherry and alfalfa hay entry into India.
