Task force of Pakistan-Afghanistan Parliamentary Friendship Group Discussed implementation of decisions regarding Trade facilitation.

Pakistan and Afghanistan would be beneficial for the people living on both side of the border. Special Assistant to Prime Minister Arbab Shahzad has said that increasing volume of mutual trade is linked with welfare of common people especially those living in borders areas and for economic progress of the country.

He said this while chairing the 3rd meeting of the Task force on Pakistan Afghanistan Trade Liberalization under the Executive Committee of Pakistan Afghanistan Parliamentary Friendship group in the Parliament House on Thursday.

Shandana Gulzaar suggested facilitating traders as rent seeking and smuggling is damaging interests of both traders and the government.

The meeting was attended by Sadiq Khan Special Envoy for Afghanistan, Members National Assembly Mohsin Dawar, Ali Wazir, Shandana Gulzaar, Molvi Salahudin and senior officers of FBR,  Ministries  of Commerce , Foreign Affairs, Health  and   Interior and Balochistan  and KP government Representatives.
