ECC allows private sector to import wheat

June 24, 2020: Economic Coordination Committee (ECC) of the Cabinet has allowed the private sector to import wheat to control prices of wheat and flour in the market and ensure the availability of these commodities at a reasonable price across the country throughout the year.

The ECC meeting, chaired by Adviser to the Prime Minister on Finance Dr. Abdul Hafeez Shaikh, also decided not to restrict the import of wheat to any limit by the private sector and further decided to monitor the situation on monthly basis.

The meeting also decided that the movement of wheat would be facilitated between Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan while overall free movement of wheat should be ensured across the districts and provinces.
