The federal government recently approved the sale of a limited number of commodities to the Central Asian Republics (CARs) via Afghanistan in exchange for Pakistani currency.
According to reliable sources, the government has amended the Export Policy Order, 2020 to allow the export of raw materials in rupees via land routes. But salt, rice, cement, medicines, poultry, meat, fruits and dried fruits, fish and other fish products, medicines, sweets, sweets and sugar goods are now allowed to be exported.
In addition, bakery products, plant-based food items, oil cakes, vegetables and related material, vegetable waste, matches, textiles and textile products, building blocks and surgical tools are also among the items that may not be exported.
However, due to the lack of tradable currency through banking channels last month, the cabinet’s Economic Coordination Committee (ECC) approved the export of another 14 items to Afghanistan in rupees via land routes.
