Islamabad, March 18: Pakistan exports at least 2,700 tonnes of gypsum to India daily through the Wagah border crossing, the National Assembly was informed on Friday. Minister for Commerce Khurram Dastgir Khan said that since July 2015, Pakistan exports Gypsum to India in ‘crushed loose form’ with value up to $22 dollars per tonne, Radio Pakistan reported.
He also said that the major reason behind the decline in Pakistan’s exports was a massive reduction in world commodities price. Another reason was major recession in international markets and slowdown in China which resulted in decrease in demand, Khan said.
The Minister said the main focus of the trade policy was on value-addition. (IANS)
