An important attribute of Pakistan dates is that they are the
EARLIEST ripening dates varieties in the world. While in rest of
the world, dates ripen in the months of September and October,
Pakistani dates are harvested in the month of July. Pakistani
exporters of dates are thus able to make shipments of
scientifically processed (current crop) dates from the first
week of August.
Similarly, Pakistani honey is famous world-over for its higher
quality. Honey obtained from Sidder flowers is the most sought
after honey variety by international buyers of honey.
Pakistan Honey and Dates Show 2006 will be an excellent
opportunity for Honey and Dates importers in various countries
in the world to find new, reliable sources of supply of these
items in Pakistan. The buyers will certainly find prices of
these items very attractive.
The devastating earthquake which hit Pakistan on October 8, 2005
has caused unprecedented damage to life, property, communication
links and infrastructure. The northern parts of Pakistan and
particularly Azad Kashmir are most severely affected.
Communication links and roads have been badly damaged and many
disaster hit areas remain out of reach.
The international community has offered assistance in the form
of cash and rescue teams. Many of the teams have already arrived
in Pakistan and are undertaking search and rescue operations.
In order to deal effectively with this national disaster, the
Government of Pakistan has appealed for cash donations. The
Presidents Relief Fund is receiving donations from the
Pakistanis, overseas Pakistanis and the international community.
Donations can be made directly to the Embassy of Pakistan, Iran
