He also noted, with a sigh of relief, that the bilateral trade volume has crossed the $1.1 billion mark after the stalemate of a decade; which is considered a landmark achievement by FPCCI and the business fraternity.

Mr. Suleman Chawla, Senior Vice President FPCCI, has called for facilitating the ECO regional and other sub-regional countries to benefit from the geo-economic dynamics; land-based trade routes, and the fruits of complementary economies to alleviate poverty and unemployment.

Mr. Amjad Rafi, a veteran business leader; who has served as the Chairman of PTJBC for over two decades collectively; stated that Pakistan’s accession to UN’s TIR Convention has opened the doors for unprecedented and sustainable growth in trade with Turkey in particular and ECO region in general.
