ISLAMABAD/MUMBAI: Pakistan has allowed sugar exports of 500,000 tonnes without putting any quantitative restriction on mills, a government statement said on Tuesday, as the country aims to trim inventory and generate revenue for cash-strapped mills.

Exporters need to ship the quantity within 90 days after registering exports, the statement said.
