The Pakistani government has permitted the import of 200,000 tones of refined sugar due to the massive deficit of the commodity in the country, local newspaper The News reported on Wednesday.

The decision to import sugar came at the Economic Coordination Committee meeting which was held here on Tuesday with Adviser on Finance Shaukat Tarin in the chair, said the report.

There is a deficit of more than one million tones of sugar as the demand stands at 4.5 million tones and the production is expected to reach 3.2 million tones, according to The News.
