As a big achievement, Chinese and Pakistani dignitaries are about to sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to facilitate the export of Pakistani onion to China.
The signing ceremony is scheduled for November 23, according to a source from the Chinese embassy in Pakistan. This MoU will ensure safe entry of onions from Pakistan to China.
“It is an important step towards building cooperation between the two sides and promoting exports of agricultural goods from Pakistan.”
Agriculture is an untapped sector in Pakistan where investment and partnership potentials exist.
Earlier in October this year, both the countries agreed to sign two MoUs to enhance export of onion to China and to introduce revolutionary Chinese Juncao technology.
“We will facilitate exports of cherry, onion, potato and other agricultural products from Pakistan to China,” Chinese Ambassador to Pakistan Nong Rong noted, adding: “We will actively promote the construction of disease-free zones and help Pakistan bring beef and mutton products to the Chinese market.”
On September 8, the envoy called on Pakistan’s Federal Minister of National Food Security and Research Syed Fakhar Imam in Islamabad. Both dignitaries agreed to enhance trade and exchange of technologies in the agriculture sector.
Imam said that Pakistan has huge export potential in terms of vegetables and fruits such as mango, citrus fruit, apple, cherry, etc. He said that trade between the two countries has huge potential and can be increased significantly.
“As China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) enters the second phase of high-quality development with focus on agricultural and industrial cooperation, China will introduce more Pakistani agricultural products to the country,” remarked Rong while addressing the China-Pakistan Agricultural Products Processing Cooperation and Exchange Forum held on June 23.
