Frogh voiced her concerns over unreasonable delays in clearance of Afghanistan-bound goods at Pakistani facilities and called for practical steps to remedy the situation.

FPCCI Vice-President Dr. Mirza Ikhtiar Baig promised that Pakistani authorities would their best to ensure expeditious clearance of Afghanistan-bound goods.

He added that efforts would be made to prevent poor quality goods entering Afghan markets through Pakistan’s soil.

This comes as bilateral trade between the two neighboring nations has declined to USD 1.5mn in 2015.
