- Pakistan can get Indian sugar cheaper and faster if the sugar-deficit neighbouring country resumes trade with India and contain its rising retail prices of the sweetener out there during Ramadan that will commence soon, sugar industry bodies said on Sunday.
- Sugar prices in the retail markets of Pakistan have spiralled sharply up to PKR 100 per kg due to production shortages and the country is mulling over imports. The Pakistan Economic Coordination Committee (ECC) has recommended the government to allow import of 5,00,000 tonnes of white sugar to boost domestic availability.
