    October data: Exports fall, imports rise

    Pakistan’s exports dropped 2.2 per cent in October compared to the same month last year while imports jumped 12.9 per cent, figures released by the Trade Development Authority of Pakistan (TDAP) show

    Exports were valued at $1.896 billion, down from $1.938 billion in October 2010. On the other hand, imports totalled $3.607 billion compared to imports valued at $3.196 billion in October last year. Trade deficit in the month came to $1.71 billion.
    However, cumulative export figures for four months (July-October) of the current fiscal year painted a positive picture as shipments grew 12.9 per cent.
    Exports during July-October 2011-12 stood at $7.899 billion against shipments worth $6.996 billion in the corresponding period of last year.
    However, imports grew at a faster pace of 17.1 per cent in the four-month period. Imports during July-October were recorded at $14.31 billion compared to $12.225 billion in the corresponding period of 2010-11.

    This is a worrying trend. Exporter SOP should be provided.

    Not good, however, as also mentioned in the article, you can't look at one month as a trend. It's the whole year or a series of months.

    You know i have just posted about 13% rise in Pakistani exports from July to October. But you see the Eurozone crisis will take its toll now just like Pakistan exports have gone in negative, the Indian exports from huge 83% rise in July have gone to just 11% growth this month. To counter this the Indian govt is providing SOP to exporters and thats why i said SOPs to be provided to Pakistani exporters as well.
