Pakistan starts exporting cement to India

Bilateral trade between India and Pakistan has taken a significant step forward with at least five Pakistani companies approved by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) starting to export cement to India while five more manufacturers have applied for certification.

'A total of 11 cement companies have been cleared by the BIS and four more have applied to get approval for export,' Shahzad Ahmed, secretary of All Pakistan Cement Manufacturers Association (APCMA), told IANS.

The idea of cement export from Pakistan surfaced during a meeting between Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Pakistan's former prime minister Shaukat Aziz in 2005.

Pakistani exporters were encouraged by the Indian's government steps to abolish countervailing duty and additional customs duty, making imports viable.
