Pak allows cotton imports from Central Asia via land
Pakistani cabinet’s Economic Coordination Committee (ECC) recently approved import of cotton from Afghanistan and central Asian countries through the land route to meet its shortfall in the textile sector. The ECC decision followed a proposal submitted by the ministry of commerce and textile during a meeting presided over by the finance minister Asad Umar.

The import is allowed through the Torkham border with the condition that imported cotton should meet Pakistan’s sanitary and phytosanitary regulations, according to media reports in Pakistan.

Pakistan is a net cotton importer with the textile industry consuming 12 to 15 million bales per annum. Pakistani cotton is of short to medium staple length and therefore extra long staple cotton has to be imported for production of finer yarn counts. (DS)
