Af-Pak Chamber of Commerce Opens in Karachi

The joint Afghanistan-Pakistan Chamber of Commerce has opened in Pakistan in a move to resolve transit issues between the countries and attract investors, the Afghan Chamber of Commerce deputy chief Khan Jan Alokozai said Sunday.

The establishment of the joint chamber, which officially opened March 13, was coordinated by the US embassies in Kabul and Islamabad.

The British Embassy in Islamabad will cover the expenses of the chamber for the next three years, Alokozai said.

One of the main parts of the Afghanistan, Pakistan Transit Agreement (APTA) was to establish a joint chamber to help boost co-ordination between Afghan and US traders.

“It will be very good. It will not only solve trade issues between the two governments but also between the traders,” he said.

The general director of the joint Chamber of Commerce is a Pakistani citizen and the chief executive is an Afghan trader. The chamber has two Afghan and two Pakistani deputies.

The opening comes just months after Pakistan lifted its several-month halt on Afghan trade containers in Karachi and Peshawar ports.
