FPCCI stresses global trade for economic viability

Published: January 13, 2018


KARACHI: Global export markets have changed drastically over the last two decades, Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FPCCI) President Ghazanfar Bilour said on Friday.

“Focus has shifted from traditional markets in the West to new emerging markets in Africa, Asia, Central Asia, China and India,” Bilour said.

Facilitating trade between economies has become important for businesses, the FPCCI president said, while emphasising the need for taking steps to increase the ease of doing business and improving the business environment.

“There is also a need for better investment policies to attract foreign capital especially in export sectors,” he said, stressing that a country’s economic growth is subject to the efficiency of its agricultural sector and that value-addition is required to exploit the true potential.
