ISLAMABAD: Pakistan and the United Kingdom welcomed recent increase in the volume of bilateral trade and vowed to further boost collaboration between the two countries. Acting high commissioner Richard Crowder and deputy trade director Matt Lister from the British High Commission met officials of the Lahore Chamber of Commerce and Industry, including its president Malik Tahir Javaid and secretary general Shahid Khalil. The bilateral trade between the countries stood at £2.7 billion in 2016; however, they agreed that this figure should rise in the future. They agreed on the scope of growth in sectors such as finance, legal and business services and discussed the importance of reforms to make Pakistan an easier and more attractive destination for businesses.
