Pakistan export drive targets UAE

Pakistan fashionPakistan export drive: Pakistan has set aside $170m to trigger a 10% – or $35bn – annual increase in exports, according to a new report from its Ministry of Finance. The UAE and Saudi Arabia are to be particularly targeted as potential markets for its fashion, mangoes, high tech electronics and pharmaceutical products.
The UAE’s current share of exports from Pakistan is 4%, the report says, but also serves as a transit point for the movement of Pakistan goods to other countries in the Middle East Africa and South East Asia.
