Engr. Daroo Khan Achakzai, President FPCCI congratulated Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan on his successful visit to China, during which the bilateral trade collaboration and economic relations remained in focus.
He hoped that in the times to come, these would be further expanded. He was optimistic that the Chinese investment particularly in the specialized economic zones (SEZs) would expand Pakistan’s industrial base and assist diversifying its export basket. He also expressed his conviction that the MOUs signed between the two governments including the FTA Part-II would bring closer the business communities of both the countries. However, to meet the challenges of our export to China he emphasized on the need of further enhancement of our agricultural and industrial base to optimize the benefits of China – Pakistan Free Trade Agreement (CPFTA).
The FPCCI Chief elaborated that China had agreed to immediately eliminating tariffs on 313 most priority lines which cover $8.7 billion worth of our global exports and $64 billion worth of Chinese global imports.
