Pakistan: Thai entrepreneurs keen on importing fish from Pakistan September 21,2017   |  Source: FIS World News

Thailand has sent their 17 member delegation of seafood importers to Pakistan in an attempt to look for more business opportunities between Pakistani and Thai fishermen. According to Trade Development Authority (TDAP), the importers from Thailand will be primarily looking to explore opportunities of seafood exports from Pakistan. TDAP has invited them and has also organized this visit.

During the visit, Thai importers participated in the opening session of an event where the DG Marine Fishing Department gave a detailed presentation on fishing laws and fishing industry of Pakistan. After the presentation, a B2B meeting session was organized between the delegates with their Pakistani counterparts, in which large number of local exporting companies also participated. In 2015-16, Pakistan exported USD 107 million worth of products to Thailand out of which USD 46.82 million comprised of seafood products. There is a huge potential for export of fish and other seafood products from Pakistan. TDAP hoped that due to the visit of this delegation, there will be more joint ventures between Pakistani and Thai companies in the fisheries sector.
