This happened after extensive deliberations of concerned Ministries and Chairman Pak-Saudi Joint Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PSJCCI) with Saudi ambassador to Pakistan.

"Minister for Ports and Shipping, Mir Hasil Bizenjo, other relevant Ministries and I made co-ordinated efforts to restore export of Pakistani shrimps to Saudi Arabia. Saudi ambassador to Pakistan also played his role in lifting of ban," said PSJCCI president Mian Mehmood.

The decision of Saudi Arabian government would certainly send a positive message to the shrimp exporters whose business suffered after a ban on exports, he added.
