KARACHI: Pakistan has already achieved the current financial year’s export target of 0.2 million tons of kinno, while the export still continues, Geo News reported on Friday.
Russia emerged the biggest buyer, where 40 percent of Pakistan kinno was exported.
Pakistan Fruit Exporters Association’s chairman, Waheed Ahmad said that over 0.221 million tons of kinno worth $132.7 has thus far been exported. He said that the ministry of commerce allowed timely export of kinno that resulted in meeting the target.
Besides Russia on the top, Middle East, East Europe, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Canada, Sudan and Malaysia were the prominent buyers of Pakistan kinno during the current fiscal year.
Waheed Ahmad said that 80 thousand tons of kinno could not be exported to Iran due US ban that led to commercial banks failure to issue export form, while 11 days transport strike in the country also inflicted millions of dollar loss to kinno exporters.
