@Muhammad Omar , can you post about Manufacturing / SEZ projects related to CPEC. We see a lot published on Infrastructure & Power projects which are critical. However , we also need projects that provides employment to the masses and increases are exports. I was under the impression a lot of Chinese companies were going to move manufacturing/assembly near the port as well?
I will try to gather the data

#Pakistani #passport Makes a Huge Improvement in Latest Passport Rankings for 2020

The Passport Index, the world’s leading real-time passport ranking tool, has ranked Pakistani passport at 192nd spot in the Individual Passport Power Ranking (IPPR) 2020.

Pakistani passport’s ranking has significantly improved this year as it jumped up 6 places from the 198th position for 2019.

IPPR is compiled by combining both the Mobility Score (MS), the number of countries one can visit without a visa, or they can obtain a visa on arrival, and United Nations Development Program’s Human Development Index (UNDP HDI). The higher the MS, the better the IPPR. UNDP HDI serves as a tie-breaker in case passports have the same MS.

Pakistani passport has a MS of 33 as its bearers enjoy the facility of visa-free access to 7 and visa on arrival in 26 countries

#Pakistan mango exported to #Japan

Pakistan has started exporting mangoes to Japan this season.

According to the News, Pakistan exported a record high of 120 tons of mango to Japan in 2019.

Generally, mango exports to Japan require pre-clearance by Japanese inspectors who are dispatched to Pakistan and other countries following to quarantine regulations.

However, this year, the government of Japan could not dispatch these inspectors due to the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a spokesman for the embassy.

So, the government of Japan introduced a temporary measure, which allows mango exports by taking measurements and sending necessary data and documents to Japan for quarantine
