PIBC urges Pakistan, India to open trade


Pak-India Business Council (PIBC) Chairman Noor Muhammad Kasuri has called upon the governments of Pakistan and India to open trade for benefit of peoples of neighbouring countries.

Talking to media here on Sunday, he said that volume of trade between China and India was US$150 billion despite their differences in some areas. He said volume of US-China trade stood at US$750 billion, though they had clash of interests in many areas. “Why Pakistan cannot remove trade barriers with India,” he raised a question.

He said economic cooperation between Pakistan and India was in the interest of both the nations. He said recent floods had devastated Pakistan’s economy.—APP
