Pak traders to be given relaxation in visa policy: Kumar.
ISLAMABAD, November 16, 2009 (Balochistan Times): Pakistani traders will be given relaxation in visa policy because Pakistani cloth, pharmaceutical products and chemical owing to their good quality are in high demand in India, said Rajindar Kumar Sharma Indian Commercial Counsellor to Pakistan. He expressed these views in a meeting with a delegation of Rawalpindi Chamber of Commerce and Industry (RCCI) led by President Kashif Shabbir at his office here on Monday. Rajindar Kumar said that India is the second largest trade market after China in the region and Indian Embassy in Pakistan will fully cooperate with the Pakistani business community in trade sector to boost bilateral trade relations. He was of the view that restoration of trade relations between the two countries can play a vital role to enhance political relations. Speaking on the occasion, Kashif Shabbir said that India is our neighbouring country and the masses of the both sides want peaceful relations and business community can play an effective role in this regard. He said that Pakistani traders want that a proper space should be given to them in the Indian markets and explained that major exports from Pakistan to India are sugar cane, fruits, vegetables, cotton, chemical, cloth and yarn and the major exports from the Indian side are rubber and plastic material. It is not enough for the trade relation between the two thumb countries of the region. We should move forward to the non-traditional trade items to further improve the trade relation, he said. Commercial Counsellor ensured his full cooperation to RCCI President in this regard. Senior Vice President Syed Ali Raza Saeed Shah, Vice President Khawaja Abdur Rashid Waien and RCCI executive committee members were present on the occasion.
