President Islamabad Chamber of Commerce & Industry (ICCI) Sardar Yasir Ilyas Khan has stressed that Pakistan and Palestine should cooperate with private sectors for promoting trade and investment relations between our two brotherly countries as their current volume of bilateral trade was quite negligible compared to the actual potential of both countries.
Addressing a zoom meeting organized by the Embassy of Palestine to explore trade and investment opportunities between Pakistan and Palestine here on Thursday, he said that many Pakistani products including Basmati rice, pharmaceuticals, IT, sports goods, textiles, marble products and others could find good market in Palestine and emphasized that strong business linkages between the private sectors of both countries were important to explore all untapped areas for promoting trade and investment on reciprocal basis.
ICCI members Nasir Qureshi and Fazal-e-Hanan briefed the Palestinian side about the state-of-the-art manufacturing capabilities of Pakistani pharmaceuticals companies that were exporting their quality products around the world.
Karim Aziz Malik former Senior Vice President ICCI apprized the Palestinian side about the high quality Basmati rice of Pakistan that was being exported to around 28 countries including Japan.
