The 4th ‘Made in Pakistan’ expo kicks off in Kabul

The fourth ‘Made in Pakistan’ exhibition has kicked off in capital Kabul and will continue until May 7.

Organized by the Rawalpindi Chamber of Commerce and Industry (RCC), the exhibition is attracting a large number of traders, businessmen and women.

The inaugural ceremony of the exhibition was attended by Afghan Deputy Minister for Commerce Muzammil Shinwari, Pakistan Ambassador to Afghanistan, Syed Abrar Hussain, Co-Chairman Pak-Afghan Joint Chamber (PAJCCI) Khan Jan Alokozay, President RCCI Mian Humayun Parvez, Vice Chairman Exhibition Committee Khurshid Barlas and members of the executive committee.

“Exhibitions as such are in the interest of Afghanistan and Pakistan,” said Shinwari. He called on Pakistani traders for joint investment in Afghanistan and stressed on increasing the bilateral trade volume to USD 5bn as agreed by the Afghan and Pakistani high ranking officials.

Alokozay in his address said that trade and politics should be kept separate. He added that economic cooperation between the two nations would help in elimination of extremism and terrorism in the two countries.

RCCI President Mian Humayun Parvez appreciated the role of Afghan Chamber of Commerce and Industry and Pak-Afghan joint chamber, the countries’ embassies for extending their support and cooperation in holding such exhibitions.

He expressed confidence that further co-operation between the two nations could enhance the current volume of trade in the region from 4.5% to 20% with concerted efforts.

Pakistan’s Ambassador to Afghanistan Abrar Hussein in his address said: “We are committed to fully facilitate Afghan transit trade to Pakistan.”
