Taipei, April 4 (CNA) A delegation led by Pingtung County Magistrate Pan Men-an introduced the southern county's premium fruit and flowers at its first promotion in Oman Monday.

Pingtung County government, in a news release, quoted Pan as saying that the Persian Gulf countries have high consumption and mainly produce oil, relying on imports of agricultural products.

Pan noted that his county is an important production base in Taiwan for farm produce, marine products and flowers. It is also looking to become a supply base for countries in the Middle East and increase its share of the market for agriculture produce in the six-country Gulf Cooperation Council -- Bahrain, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates.

Pan displayed not only pineapples, red dragon fruit (pitaya), guavas and lemons, but also dancing lady orchids and vanda genus orchids.

The promotion was held at Majid Al Futtaim Retail - Carrefour, the top fruit selling store in Oman.

On a similar visit to Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates last April, Magistrate Pan found that there was much interest in fruit grown in Pingtung.

However, due to crop damage caused by typhoons, the plan to export fruit to the two Gulf countries failed to get off the ground. (Courtesy of CNA)
