Pakistan has signed an agreement to facilitate bilateral trade with Afghanistan and has also decided to import Afghan cotton. At a ceremony held in Islamabad, both the countries signed the agreed minutes of the meeting that took place on May 8. The two nations desire to enhance bilateral trade ties and address and overcome challenges faced by them.

The minutes were signed between Mohammad Younus Dagha, secretary commerce, Pakistan and Kamila Sidiqi, deputy minister for industries and commerce, Afghanistan. The delegation from Afghanistan arrived in Pakistan on May 7 to talk to their Pakistani counterparts about improving bilateral trade.

The ministers from both countries also spoke about removing regulatory duties levied on import of Afghan products. Pakistan’s ministry of commerce assured the Afghan delegation to accommodate Afghanistan’s request to remove these duties on a number of products.

Afghanistan said it will work towards removing impediments in transit and trade with Pakistan, according to Pakistani media reports. (KD)
