SIAKOT-Romanian Ambassador in Pakistan Nicolae Goia has said that his country was keen to boost bilateral trade ties with Pakistan.

Addressing a meeting of exporters held at Sialkot Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SCCI), the envoy said that there were bright opportunities to promote the mutual trade between Pakistan and Romania.

The Romanian ambassador asked the Sialkot exporters to divert their business activities to his country, saying that the Sialkot exporters have great potential to explore and capture the international trade markets of Romania by exporting their world class traditional and non-traditional export products.

The envoy said that several Romanian companies were showing keen interest in launching joint ventures with Pakistani companies, adding that there were bright opportunities of setting up joint ventures in different trade fields.

He also assured his full cooperation in making efforts to motivate the Romanian businessmen to ensure direct imports of Sialkot-made export products directly from Pakistan instead of purchasing these products from other countries on high prices. Earlier, he visited several leading industrial units. SCCI President, SVP Abdul Waheed and Vice President Abid Ahmed Khawaja were also present.
