Taipei--A delegation from Pingtung in southern Taiwan will travel to Bahrain later this month to promote the county's agricultural products and explore the market potential in Oman, the county government said Thursday.
On a similar visit to Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates last April, a delegation led by Pingtung County Magistrate Pang Men-an (???) found that there was interest in fruits produced in Pingtung, the local government said.
However, due to crop damage by several typhoons, the plan to export fruits to the two Gulf countries did not get off the ground, agricultural officials said.
Pan will lead the delegation on the upcoming visit to the Middle East to promote the county's pineapples, red dragon fruit, guavas and lemons, the officials said.
They will also promote Pingtung's dancing lady orchids and vanda genus orchids in Oman and Barhrain during the trip, which will last from March 31-April 8, the officials said.
