Staff Reporter



Islamabad—Pakistan fruit especially oranges and mangoes are in great demand in Indonesia. Despite the high level of import duty Pakistani citrus fruit can be seen on sale in all markets, says a press release received here from Jakarta.

Maersk said the new service would dramatically change the way container shipping operates as it offers a daily cut-off at the same time every day, seven days a week, always with the same transit time.
