Pakistan kinnow exports thwarted by Afghan import duties

Yesterday, Vice President of the Pakistan Businesses Forum Ahmad Jawad said Afghanistan recently imposed import duties on kinnows from Pakistan, upending the 100,000-tons export market. Currently, Afghanistan impose custom duty at 30 percent on kinnows at the import side which has impacted Pakistan’s kinnow export target

Though Pakistan and Afghanistan are to hold the next round of parleys on new draft of Afghanistan Pakistan Transit Trade Agreement (APTTA) at the end of the current month or early next month as the term of pact will expire on February 11, 2021, Jawad revealed that differences exist between the two sides particularly on three to four issues, due to which the minutes of the second round were not signed.
