Govt to allow duty-free wheat imports as flour prices soar

Islamabad (HRNW) The federal government has decided to take important steps to curb rising flour prices across the country. The government will lift the duty on importing wheat in order to control soaring flour prices in the country.

PTI leader Jahangir Khan Tareen announced this after he and National Food Security and Research Minister Khusro Bakhtiar were tasked with looking into the crisis. The public is up in arms over the price hike and has been calling on the government to control it.

Prime Minister Imran Khan tasked Tareen and Bakhtiar with resolving the issue and their solution is to import more wheat.

Once that wheat enters the market, prices will drop, said Tareen.
