KARACHI: A six-member delegation from Mali met with the chief executive of the Trade Development Authority of Pakistan (TDAP), Muhammad Zubair Motiwala, on Tuesday to discuss the removal of a ban on Mali cotton imports in Pakistan.
The delegation represented Mali's ministries of industry and commerce, and agriculture, as well as the relevant organisations for plant protection and phyto-sanitary controls in Mali, TDAP said in a statement.
"The delegation discussed the ongoing ban on Mali cotton imports in Pakistan and the way forward to fulfil the requirements in order to get the ban removed." The delegates apprised Motiwala and the director general of the textiles and leather division of TDAP about the meetings they had with different organizations in Pakistan related to the issue.
Motiwala discussed the prospects of enhancing mutual trade and investment between the two countries, and suggested that Mali could import value-added textiles products from Pakistan, which would use Mali cotton once the ban is removed.
The delegation expressed its gratitude to TDAP for facilitating them during their two-week long visit to Pakistan, and hoped for a positive outcome of their efforts.
