Pakistan’s seafood exports to Egypt has largely come to a halt because political uncertainty continues in the key Middle Eastern country following ouster of the long-enthroned President Hosni Mubarak early this year, exporters said on Friday.
“Fairly large seafood consignments are stuck in the unrest-hit Arab republic, as exporters are struggling to clear them,” said Chairman of Pakistan Fisheries Exporters Association (Pakfea), M.??Faisal Iftikhar, adding that selling of the products is not taking place at present.
He made it clear that unlike Egypt, the Libyan crisis, with the killing of Muammar al-Qaddafi, has had no impact on the export of aquatic products from Pakistan as the two countries do not have seafood trade.?
