Pakistan and Iran agreed upon constituting a trade committee, comprising officials of both the countries, to expand rail connections and provide relief on trade of food items.
These decisions were taken during the first sitting of the Pak-Iran trade session held in Quetta. The meeting was jointly chaired by Quetta Customs Collector Ashraf Ali and head of Iranian delegation Nadir Mir.
Business communities and government officials of both the countries were present.
The session reviewed various trade opportunities, including promotion of banking system and trade, between the two Muslim neighbouring countries.
“There is an immediate need to resolve the issues causing hurdles in trade between Pakistan and Iran. The session will be beneficial in increasing our trade with Iran,” said Ali, adding that Pakistan seeks to functionalise the banking sector with Iran.
