RAWALPINDI (APP) - The single country exhibition Made in Pakistan recently held in Dhaka, Bangladesh, has proved beneficial for boosting trade ties between the two countries and such exhibitions would also be held in future in other countries particularly in SAARC member countries. This was stated by President Rawalpindi Chamber of Commerce and Industry (RCCI) while talking to APP. He said there is huge demand of Pakistani products in Bangladesh and the successful holding of single country exhibition has proved that both the countries can enhance the volume of bilateral trade to a considerable level. He stressed the need for formulating a long term policy to boost bilateral trade with Bangladesh so that the set goals could be achieved. The exhibition Made in Pakistan has not only helped in evaluating demand and supply of Pakistani products but also promoted direct link between the business communities of both the countries. This will open up new avenues for the trade between the two countries, he said. There is huge demand of Pakistani products particularly of textile items and ready made garments in Bangladesh, he said and underlined the need for exploring new areas for trade. President RCCI S Ali Raza Saeed Shah said the present trade volume between the two countries is $350 million which is too low. The objective behind holding Made in Pakistan exhibition in Bangladesh was to promote bilateral trade ties between the two countries and to open up new avenues for the promotion of trade.
