Afghanistan exported 2,000 cartons of fresh grapes to Russia on Saturday. According to the Balkh Chamber of Commerce and Investment, the shipment was sent through the Hairatan border crossing in Afghanistan’s Northern Province.

On Saturday, these fresh grapes were transported to Uzbekistan via refrigerated trucks, originating from the Haritan

port in the province. As reported by Asadullah Asadi, the leader of the Balkh Chamber of Commerce and Industries, the grapes were subsequently sent to Russia.

He further highlighted that there had been a noticeable rise in the export of goods from Afghanistan to its neighbouring countries over the recent months.

He said that shortly, traders would utilize the same land port to export a variety of fruits, including pomegranates and apples.

The Hairatan dry port and border checkpoint are located on the Amu River, serving as the border with Uzbekistan. The Afghanistan-Uzbekistan Friendship Bridge connects the two nations, emerging as a vital trade route linking Afghanistan and neighbouring countries to the north.

Afghanistan primarily exports fresh and dried fruits to India and Pakistan, constituting a significant portion of its trade.

Afghanistan’s exports to Central Asian countries, including Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, and Turkmenistan, have surged this year, according to the Afghanistan Chamber of Commerce and Investment.
