Karachi: Export of onions lying at port hangs in balance

The Ministry of National Food Security and Research has notified a ban on export of onions until May 31, ARY News reported.

The export of tons of onions, that arrived at the Karachi port prior to the issuance of the notification, hangs in the balance as vegetable and fruit exporters have called on the authorities concerned to allow their export.

The All Pakistan Fruit & Vegetable Exporters, Importers & Merchants Association’s (PFVA) Waheed Ahmed said as many as 170 containers full of onions are lying at the port which were to be loaded onto a ship slated to leave Monday. Denying permission to export this consignment would incur a loss of $2 million, he said.
