LAHORE: The Lahore Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) and the Pakistan-Canada Business Chamber inked a memorandum of understanding to work jointly for the expansion of trade and economic ties between the two countries. Both the chambers will facilitate each other and provide assistance in order to step up bilateral trade activities. Speaking on the occasion, LCCI Senior Vice President Khawaja Khawar Rasheed said Pakistan was eager to increase bilateral trade and investment in Canada in a bid to give a boost to the national economy. Agriculture and livestock were two potential areas of cooperation among others. He was of the view that a little sector-specific effort could jack up trade volume to around $2 billion in the next few years.
