Pakistan agrees to import tariff of 5% for Iranian apple

Pakistan has agreed to limit the tariff imposed on apple imported from Iran to 5% under a new agreement signed between agriculture and food authorities of the two countries.

Head of Iran’s National Association of Agricultural Products said that a new round of Iranian apple exports to Pakistan will start in September and Iranian exporters can supply up to 500,000 tons of the fruit to Pakistan under the new tariff system, Press TV reported.

Seyyed Reza Nourani said Iranian and Pakistani authorities have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to boost trade of agricultural products between the two countries.

A report by IRNA suggested that Syed Waseem-ul-Hassan, the top food security commissioner from Pakistan’s Ministry of National Food Security and Research, has signed the MoU with Iranian Agriculture Ministry officials in Tehran on Saturday.

The report said the MoU will settle quarantine issues between Iran and Pakistan while allowing for increased trade of agriculture products between the two neighbors.

It said Pakistan will supply mango, kinnow and rice to Iran under the new agreement while Iran will be able to export apple and nuts to Pakistan.
