What Pakistan exported in 2016. Worth $21 billion.

The World Bank Group today held a round table on achieving export competitiveness for Pakistan at Lahore PC. I was one of the delegates. The event was organised by SDPI Islamabad and Ministry of Commerce was represented by a DG.

When the delegates were divided for breakout session, I chose the category of ‘existing exporters’, which had delegates both from large exporters and SMEs. The host thought it appropriate to ask me to moderate the group members’ views and present in the final round. Which I did.

What Pakistan exported in 2015. Worth $24 billion.

Many delegates did not know the volume of Pakistan exports over the years and how these had been declining. I had been publishing these figures in my other posts, particularly:
