Pakistan’s cotton yarn import from India surged 93.8 per cent YoY in terms of volume and up 60.7 per cent in terms of value in December. In Pakistan, the yarn production was down due to energy shortages and margins slid in December over significantly higher cotton prices.

Nine new destinations were added for cotton yarn export, of which, Singapore, Costa Rica, Paraguay, Mozambique and Estonia were the major ones.
