LIVESTOCK TRADERS URGED TO TAP CHINESE MARKET

Livestock farmers and traders of Pakistan can make huge profits by grabbing their due share in the Chinese market, a former senior official in the Sindh Livestock and Fisheries Department told Gwadar Pro. Ali Akbar Soomro, who retired as the general manager recently, said that Sindh was home to dozens of precious breeds of buffalo, cow, goat and sheep, which were being produced on a mass scale. He said that the Chinese market offered big opportunities to the Pakistani farmers and traders involved in the livestock business. Soomro’s remarks came in the wake of a message from Chinese Consul General in Karachi Li Bijian, in which the Chinese official invited Pakistani businessmen to what he termed as the fully-developed Chinese market. The senior Chinese diplomat said that China was further opening up its market for Pakistani goods and products. Soomro said that livestock farming was a sprawling business in Sindh and there were countless farms across the province. Livestock traders and farmers have a huge opportunity to tap the enormous Chinese market, he said.
