KARACHI: Eco­nomic Ad­vi­sor to Tereng­ganu Prov­ince in Malaysia Haji Roslin Ab­dul Rehman has urged the busi­ness com­mu­nity of Pak­istan to se­ri­ously look into the pos­si­bil­ity of ex­port­ing meat to Malaysia which is a US$2 bil­lion mar­ket for meat only, of which only 24 per­cent was be­ing sup­plied lo­cally while the rest of the meat was be­ing im­ported from nu­mer­ous coun­tries.

“Half of the de­mand for meat in Malaysia was be­ing ful­filled by im­port­ing meat from Aus­tralia, Brazil, New Zealand, In­dia, China and Thailand, which are all non-Mus­lim coun­tries but not a sin­gle con­tainer of meat was be­ing ex­ported from Pak­istan de­spite the fact that both Mus­lim coun­tries have been en­joy­ing ex­cel­lent brotherly re­la­tions since many years”, Malaysian Eco­nomic Ad­vi­sor added while ex­chang­ing views at a meet­ing dur­ing the visit of Malaysian del­e­ga­tion to KCCI. Pres­i­dent KCCI Ju­naid Es­mail Makda, Vice Pres­i­dent Asif Sheikh Javaid, Chair­man of Diplo­matic Mis­sions & Em­bassies Li­ai­son Sub­com­mit­tee Shamoon Zaki, For­mer Vice Pres­i­dent Agha Sha­hab Ahmed Khan and KCCI Man­ag­ing Com­mit­tee Mem­bers at­tended the meet­ing.

Malaysian Eco­nomic Ad­vi­sor stressed that it­was a very good op­por­tu­nity for Pak­istani meat ex­porters hence, they must col­lab­o­rate with Malaysian busi­ness com­mu­nity to ef­fec­tively pen­e­trate into the Malaysian mar­ket. While re­fer­ring to PM Im­ran Khan’s visit to Malaysia, he in­formed that Malaysian Prime Min­is­ter Ma­hathir Bin Mo­hamad will also be vis­it­ing Pak­istan in the March 2019 while the Malaysian Min­is­ters for Re­li­gion and Agri­cul­ture will also be here who may en­dorse any Pak­istani slaugh­ter house or any meat pro­cess­ing fac­tory in­tend­ing to ex­port meat to Malaysia.

He fur­ther sug­gested that Pak­istan and Malaysia can also de­velop a joint global brand for ex­port of Ha­lal meat while Pak­istani busi­ness com­mu­nity can also ex­port tim­ber prod­ucts, seafood, fruits and veg­eta­bles to Malaysia.

Speak­ing on the oc­ca­sion, Pres­i­dent KCCI Ju­naid Es­mail Makda as­sured the Malaysian del­e­gates that the Karachi Cham­ber will cer­tainly en­cour­age ex­porters to dis­patch meat to Malaysia and would also carry out a study to ex­am­ine and iden­tify the ir­ri­tants re­spon­si­ble for zero ex­port of meat from Pak­istan to Malaysia.
