Exports of Afghan dried fruits have declined

dried fruitsAccording to the Afghan Raisins, Fruits and Vegetables Export Promotion Agency, exports of Afghan dried fruits have decreased by 200 tons since last year.

The Agency links the decline to the optional membership of the Agency.

“Optional membership has a negative effect on Afghanistan’s exports because lots of low-quality and foreign fruits have been exported as products of Afghanistan,” said Agency head Sayed Azim Mostafa.

Exports of locally grown substandard quality fruit have hurt the business.

Mostafa asked the Afghan Chamber of Commerce and Industries and the Customs Department to enforce quality standards so that sub-standard products are not exported.
