India-Pakistan border post opens for business

Historic checkpoint reopens to commercial traffic in bid to boost trade between antagonistic neighbours.

For the first time since 2007, India and Pakistan are set to open a historic border crossing for commercial traffic passing between the two nations.

The “integrated check post,” as it is known, close to Wagah, the only road crossing between the antagonistic neighbours, is the first of 13 border posts planned following years of negotiations between the two sides.

The opening of the crossing at Attari on Friday could see the number of trucks entering Pakistan increase from 150 to 800 a day, greatly boosting business on both sides of the border.
