ISLAMABAD: In the wake of UK’s historic referendum, the Ministry of Commerce will conduct a round of trade diplomacy with members of the European Union in order to strengthen trade relations and augment support in the European Parliament and European Commission.

Minister for Commerce Khurram Dastgir Khan has directed the Trade Commissioner of Pakistan in Brussels, Omer Hameed, to enhance diplomatic contacts with his counterparts, especially with representatives of countries in Northern Europe, which are traditionally in favor of trade liberalisation.

Commercial officers posted in the embassies of Pakistan in Europe will be issued directions to liaise with respective trade ministries of host countries in order to project Pakistan’s credentials and check progress on trade and GSP plus.
