Pakistan’s Commerce Ministry has said in a report that cement exports to Afghanistan have increased with the change in weather, says Asia Pulse.
The report, released here on Monday, said cement exports to the war-shattered country regained momentum in February following a winter slump. The report noted that 941,840t of cement were sent to Afghanistan over the past eight months from Pakistan.
Lucky Cement Factory’s marketing officer Dilawar Shiraz linked the winter fall in cement exports to chilly weather forcing a halt in construction work. "And now with the advent of spring, it seems, exports of cement will sharply increase," he told Pajhwok Afghan News.
