As vegetable prices go up due to floods

Pakistan may import tomatoes and onions from India

The Pakistani government may import tomatoes and onions from India, as prices are spiking due to the recent floods. A wholesale dealer on the Lahore market said that in the coming days, the prices of commodities will increase further as the supply of vegetables from Balochistan, Sindh, and south Punjab has badly been affected because of floods.

In the markets, the short supply of vegetables is because of the destruction of the crops on thousands of acres by the floods in Balochistan and Sindh. It seems the federal government is considering the option of importing onions and tomatoes from India through the Wagah border crossing.
