Afghan-Pak Joint Chamber of Commerce Inaugurated

Afghan-Pak Joint Chamber inaugurated on 26 June 2012.

In response to the countless problems that have been affecting trade in Afghanistan over the past years, Afghanistan’s Chamber of Commerce and Industries made efforts to create the Afghan-Pak joint chamber.

The Afghan-Pak joint chamber was established on 4th March 2012 along with three chambers of Pakistan including (Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Karachi, Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Khyber Pakhtoon, and Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Chaman) with the support from the government.

The joint chamber will be financially supported by the Embassy of UK in Islamabad for the next three years.

The creation of the joint chamber came a few months after the release of Afghan businessmen’s containers that were stopped at the border with Karachi.

Alhaj Khan Jan Alokozay was elected as the first Deputy of the joint chamber’s board.

The other members of the board are: Azrakhsh Hafizi, Nizamuddin Taj Zada, ahmad Shah, Mohammad Yonus Mohmand, Noor Wali Yaqubi, Humayun Khwajazada, Haji Hassan, Atiqullah Momenzada, Mohammad Daud Mosa and Gul Badshah.

Afghan and Pakistani traders consider the measures taken by the joint chamber valuable and believe that they would be able to reduce trade problems between the two nations. The joint chamber would be fruitful in facilitating bilateral trade.

In addition to the joint chamber, the Afghanistan and Pakistan Transit Agreement (APTA) will also be effective in strengthening business relations between the two nations and have a prominent role in business development of Pakistan in Central Asia.
