In a series of tweets today Dawood said, “In line with our export product diversification strategy, the exports of the following products have shown encouraging trend in July 2020 over July 2019: 1. Exports of Fish and Fish Products have increased by 50% to US$26 million from US$17mn. 2. Export of Food Preparations increased by more than 300% to US$6.4mn from US$1.44mn.”

He further said that the diversification of Pakistan’s exports away from the traditional sectors to new developmental sectors is an important part of the government approach.

“I wish to congratulate exporters in the above two sectors on their performance. We should not worry about the size of any sector, as all large sectors were once small, but must look at the growth potential,” Dawood added.
