LAHORE (PPI) - Bangladesh High Commission to Pakistan Suhrab Hossain has said that SAARC countries need to enhance trade by eliminating barriers to eradicate poverty and push common interests and Pakistan can achieve its export target of $24.86 billion for the next fiscal year by focusing on regional markets. Pakistan can supply engineering goods to regional countries including sugar and cement plants, industrial equipment, ships, automobiles, small aircrafts, machine tools, domestic appliances, and defence equipment, which is second to none, he said. Pakistan needs to improve law and order situation and do a little more for consistency in policies with stress on implementation to grow as this brotherly country has everything needed for progress, said Hossain. However, he said, situation in Pakistan is not as bad as pictured by foreign media, he said. Suhrab Hossain said that Pakistan has good educational institutions that can benefit his country in a great way. Talking to an FPCCI delegation led by Chairman FPCCI, Capital Office Hameed Akhtar Chadda, Chairman Coordination Raza Khan, Chairman Media and PR Malik Sohail, SVC on Diplomatic Relations Kanwar Qutbuddin and President Womens Chamber Samina Fazil, he said that enhanced interaction between officials and well as businessmen of the two countries will benefit both. The High Commissioner invited FPCCI delegation to visit Bangladesh to explore business opportunities and meet president, prime minister, commerce minister and businesspersons. At the occasion, Malik Sohail Hussain said that enhanced trade is the need of the hour as majority of worlds poor live in this region that can only be bailed out with the help of trade. He told the High Commissioner that FPCCI will facilitate his visits to all the major business chambers of Pakistan and lauded the role of Mr. Anis ul Haque, President Saarc CCI to promote regional trade. The nominal trade between two brotherly countries need to be enhanced for mutual benefit, said Sohail, adding that both governments should try free trade, tariff waiver, cultural accords and introduce soft-loan facilities. This will bring people and the entrepreneurs of both the countries closer, he said.
