ISLAMABAD: Minister for Information and Broadcasting Chaudhry Fawad Hussain says textile exports are nearing the target of 20 billion dollars.
In a tweet Tuesday, he said the country witnessed a record rice crop of nine million tones and its exports will be around 4.75 billion dollars.
He said the prices of sugar, onion, and tomato were on a constant declining trend but such good news had failed to draw media’s attention due to their bizarre logic of – “people were not interested in such news”.
The minister said the country had achieved over 9 million tons of bumper crop rice during the current season owing to policy interventions and incentivizing local farming communities. The record rice production of this year has endowed the country to earn 4.75 billion dollars from its exports.
The series of good news continues to pour in as Pakistan has also won a cricket test match against Bangladesh after victory in the T-20 series against Bangladesh. Pakistan’s victorious return to world cricket was a great achievement, he added. TF Report
