Pakistan would be exporting 300 tons of onion to Bangladesh after nearly a gap of 15 years, as per the reports of local media.
The officials of the Trade Development Authority of Pakistan—TDAP, relayed a Bangladesh company has placed 300 tons import order to Pakistan.
Tasho Enterprise of Bangladesh has given confirmation to making a deal with a Karachi-based Roshan Enterprise for the purpose.
Bangladesh would be importing at least 12 containers of onion from Pakistan under the deal.
The officials said that Pakistan is most likely to get more of the onion import orders from Bangladesh in view of the ban slapped by India on the export of vegetables to the neighbouring nations due to a local lack of essential kitchen items owing to floods.
As per reports, heavy rainfall in India led to chaos with onion produce across Indian onion producing states of Karnataka, Maharashtra and Telangana, leading to a surge in the prices of the item and a ban on its export for meeting the local demands.
Back in the month of October, PM Khan had placed a phone call to his Bangladeshi counterpart—Sheikh Hasina for asking about her health and to convey her, his best wishes.
The PM highlighted the historic and fraternal ties between the two nations.
The Prime Minister of Pakistan repeated his commitment to strengthening the bilateral relations, as per a press release issued by the PM House Office.
