Due to the efforts of the government, direct shipments will now be possible on Amazon and Pakistan’s exporters will reap significant benefits and will be able to easily sell their products to consumers through Amazon, which will boost Pakistan’s trade and exports. This was stated by North Karachi Association of Trade & Industry (NKATI) President Faisal Moiz Khan as he welcomed the inclusion of Pakistan in the seller list by the Amazon. He said that the move will result in billions in investment and vast employment opportunities, which will also boost the country’s exports. The NKATI president said that Amazon is a huge global distribution network, which is successfully providing services all over the world including Europe and USA. Earlier, Pakistan was not included in Amazon’s seller list due to which shipments from Pakistan were not directly on Amazon.
