b) According to respectable companies, fig is now being grown within the NWFP, Punjab and Sindh on a small scale.

c) Fig has now not only interior demand but also has export price. Pakistan at present is making do with its imports simplest, and has not paid consideration to its cultivation to be able to cut down its import which is a drain on our meagre foreign exchange.

d) The fig drying trade may give employment to folks and in addition scale back regular imports.
