The Pakistan Ministry of Commerce has decided to import onions and tomatoes from Afghanistan and Iran. “The country will face shortage of onions and tomatoes in the next three months,” the officials heard. “Current flooding has damaged crops and a shortage and hike in prices is expected. Import of tomatoes and onions will help in availability and stabilization of prices of these vegetables in the country.”
Commerce Minister Naveed Qamar earlier urged for immediate steps for availability of tomatoes and onions to consumers and stabilization of the soaring prices of these commodities.
