A total of 63 companies were awarded the National Export Trophies for their contribution and performance in the country's export earnings as well as other compliance issues for fiscal 2014-15 year.
Commerce Minister Tofail Ahmed on Sunday handed over the gold, bronze and silver trophies to the recipients at a ceremony as chief guest in city's Osmani Memorial Auditorium organized by the Export Promotion Bureau (EPB).
This year, 29 gold, 20 silver and 14 bronze trophies were given in different categories and services.
Speaking on the occasion, Tofail Ahmed said the export trophies are given for the outstanding contribution in country's export and other compliance issues but exporters of export processing zones (EPZs) were deprived of the award.
