In recent years, by relying on climatic superiority, Medog County has been vigorously developing tropical fruit planting industry. It mainly plants banana and lemon, with honey pomelo, pawpaw, sugarcane, mango, citrus, and jack fruit as auxiliary industry. Now Medog fruit has become a characteristic advantaged industry to lead the local people to get rich.

In addition, the Zhamo Road has been opened to traffic for two years, transporting treasure, resources and talents between Medog and other areas.

Besides, technical training work for farmers and herdsmen will be strengthened and marketing channel will be broadened with the aim of doing a good job of tropical fruit propagandizing and popularizing work. In the future, by taking advantage of the Lhasa-Nyingchi Highway, Lhasa-Nyingchi Railway, Mainling Airport and Sichuan-Tibet Railway, Medog County aims to bring Medog fruits out of Tibet, and make Medog fruits sold at domestic and foreign markets.
