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).
