Adviser to the Prime Minister on Investment and Commerce Abdul Razak Dawood revealed on Thursday Jordan has green-lighted three Pakistani slaughterhouses to export meat to Jordan.

“MOC [Ministry of Commerce] is glad to inform that Jordan has notified three of Pakistan’s slaughterhouses for export of bovine, sheep, goat & camel meat to Jordan,” he tweeted.

The PM Adviser urged exporters to “take advantage of the opportunities offered by this non-traditional market for meat and to seek other sectors like potato, mango, kinnows & onions to diversify exports from Pakistan.”

On Oct 25, Razak Dawood said Pakistan’s exports of services increased to $635 million in the first quarter of the ongoing fiscal year.
