In a landmark development, the inaugural shipment of dried red chilies from Pakistan has reached China, marking an expansion in agricultural collaboration between the two close allies. Recognized as a prominent producer of high-quality chilies in the region, Pakistan has the potential to emerge as a key player in chili cultivation. The first consignment has now arrived in Neijiang city, underscoring the strengthening ties between Islamabad and Beijing.

Khalil Hashmi, Pakistan’s envoy to China, hailed this milestone as the commencement of a new chapter in the trade relations between the two nations.

CPEC facilitates the exchange of expertise and resources, with Chinese companies actively supporting local farmers in adopting advanced agricultural technologies and providing training to enhance production. The introduction of the chili consignment is seen as a positive step towards China cultivating high-quality crops, such as red chilies, with the assistance of Pakistani exports.

This move reflects the ongoing commitment of Pakistan and China to bolster bilateral ties, particularly in the realm of agricultural production and trade. The inaugural shipment of dry chilies not only demonstrates the capabilities of Pakistani exporters but also signals the potential for further collaboration between the two nations.

This development marks a new era in the trade relationship between Pakistan and China, underscoring the vast growth potential in the Chinese market. The envoy urged Pakistani exporters to maintain high-quality standards, enhance productivity, and implement effective marketing strategies to meet the expectations of the discerning Chinese market. The ongoing Chili contract farming project, initiated under CPEC’s agricultural initiatives, is expected to have a positive impact on local agricultural development and the livelihoods of farmers, contributing to the overall progress of both nations.
