A transit trade agreement between Pakistan and Tajikistan will be signed soon and it will help increase trade between the two countries, said Adviser to Prime Minister on Commerce and Investment Abdul Razak Dawood. In a statement on Monday, he said the beginning of transit trade between the two countries would act as a new beginning for the region’s bilateral economic and trade ties. “It will also facilitate Pakistan in enhancing contacts with other countries,” he said. “Pakistan is also working to promote bilateral trade and economic connectivity with the rest of Central Asian states.” Dawood said Prime Minister Imran Khan would attend an investment and trade conference in Dushanbe during his visit to Tajikistan on September 15. PM Khan would also meet leaders of various countries in the region and also interact with the Tajik business community, he revealed.
