Consul General of Sri Lanka in Karachi DW Jinadasa said that there is a potential of import of cheaper hides of buffalo and cows from Sri Lanka to Pakistan and Pakistani leather exporters can avail this opportunity.
Speaking as a chief guest at the Pakistan Tanners Association (PTA), he said efforts were being made to improve bilateral trade between Sri Lanka and Pakistan, as a vast potential exists to enhance trade ties between the two countries.
He said that leather export from Pakistan to Sri Lanka is negligible and stands less than $5 million, which can be enhanced. He invited the PTA delegation to visit Expo 2013 being held in Colombo in February 8-10, and display their products to fetch orders from Sri Lankan buyers.
