Iran urged to allow Pakistani kinnow imports
The Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FPCCI) has urged the Iranian government to permanently allow imports of Pakistani kinnows in order to enhance bilateral trade as Iran consumes 60,000 tons of the citrus fruit per annum.
In a statement, FPCCI Horticulture Committee Regional Chairman Ahmad Jawad recalled that the Trade Promotion Organisation of Iran allowed imports of Pakistani kinnows in February last year for only two months, which he termed unfortunate.
He emphasised that the Iranian government may realise that Pakistan’s kinnow was in great demand, as reflected in previous year’s figures, and kinnow exporters may ship good volumes this year.
He suggested that the Iranian Agriculture Ministry should sit with Pakistan’s commerce ministry and share its apprehensions, if any, so that mutually the two sides could find a permanent solution.
“Both governments must understand that it will take almost a year after giving permanent permission in order to execute the kinnow trade properly because there are a lot of formalities between the buyer and the seller,” he said.
