New Delhi has raised duties on major Pakistani products as a protest against last week's terrorist attack on its paramilitary soldiers for which it blames
Online PR News – 24-February-2019 – lahore,punjab – Around 300 trucks carrying cement, one of Pakistan's major exports to India, were stuck at the Wagah border after duties were suddenly increased 200%. This made importing them very expensive or nearly impossible. Shipments of 170 containers by sea also came to a grinding halt.
The Indian market accounts for a quarter of Pakistan's total cement exports. In the last financial year, Pakistan sold India $23 million worth of cement. Fruit and vegetable exporters will also bear the brunt of the reaction since they exported $41 million in production.
