(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) Pakistan is working on a strategy to double the size of its exports of grains, fresh fruits and vegetables, and canned food items from 500 million to 1 billion as there is huge potential for growth in the country.

Ambassador Jamil Ahmed Khan, who inaugurated the Pakistani pavilion at Sial 2012 last week, said that the UAE is currently importing products worth around 5 billion, out of which 500 million are Pakistani exports that can be raised up to 1 billion easily by establishing the country's brands in the region.

"The UAE is the biggest market for Pakistani products in the region, as our rice, fresh fruits and vegetables, canned food items and spices are highly popular here." He said that the UAE is an important regional hub but Pakistani exporters have not benefited from opportunities available here.

Khan welcomed at the Pakistan pavilion the chief guest, Shaikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister for Presidential Affairs and Chairman of Abu Dhabi Food Control Authority, and other officials. Shaikh Mansour took keen interest in organic food and herbal drinks on display.
