ANNOUNCEMENT 30 Jul 2013In July 2013, the government of Pakistan announced an altered export prohibition.
NUMBER OF INTERVENTIONS
On 30 July 2013, the Economic Coordination Committee of Pakistan decided to ban exports of livestock from 1 October 2013.
This move comes with an intention to encourage exports of processed meat products and provide other by-products to secondary industries, with the idea that the processed industry yields better returns as compared to sale of livestock.
According to UN Comtrade, Pakistan did not export more than 1 million USD worth of livestock to any country in 2012. Hence, no affected trading partner has been listed.
