Call to promote India, Pak trade

A recent CII study — India-Pakistan Economic Relations: The way forward — suggests increased exchanges in the above sectors would not only boost bilateral cooperation but also help strengthen people-to-people links between the two countries and contribute to confidence-building measures.

Pakistan Commerce Minister Makhdoom M Amin Fahim, leading a trade and industry delegation, will visit Mumbai and Delhi on September 26-30.

The study also stressed other facilitative mechanisms for promoting economic cooperation, such as visas, trade infrastructure, transport linkages and scaling down of tariff and non-tariff barriers. Pakistan is India’s third largest export destination and fourth largest source of goods among Saarc countries.
