The Sugar Mills Association and the Punjab government could not reach an agreement on the price of sugar at Rs 70 per kg.
The spokesperson of the Sugar Mills Association clarified that sugar cannot be given at Rs 70 per kg under any circumstances. Giving sugar at Rs 70 per kg will destroy the sugar industry. 2 million tons of sugar have been produced in excess of domestic requirements.
He said the government could earn ارب 1 billion in foreign exchange by exporting 1.5 million tonnes of sugar.
