Kandahar exports up to 40,000 tons of grapes this year

FO-AGRICULTUREAccording to the provincial branch of the Afghanistan Chamber of Commerce & Industries (ACCI), up to 40,000 tons of grapes have been exported from southern Kandahar this year.

ACCI official Eng. Abdul Baqi Beena said grapes worth USD 8mn have been exported to neighboring countries, mainly Pakistan.

He linked the significant increase in grape production to expansion of existing orchards and creation of new gardens.

Beena cited unreliable ground and air transportation systems, high airfares and lack of proper cooling arrangements as the main hurdles to the growth of exports.

In the meantime, some exports complained about the border closures inflicting heavy losses, as their products go rotten.
