ISLAMABAD:


High Commissioner of the Maldives Aishath Shehenaz Adam has urged the Pakistani business community to explore untapped trade prospects by holding single country exhibitions in the Maldives.


She was talking to a delegation of the Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ICCI), according to a press statement issued on Monday.

She said that the Maldives met most of its needs through imports, which offers Pakistani businessmen a good opportunity to enhance exports by increasing contacts with their Maldivian counterparts.

She said that the construction sector was another area in which Pakistan and the Maldives could collaborate for mutual benefit. She said that tourism was the main industry as about 100,000 tourists visit her country annually, adding that both countries could reap the benefits by increasing bilateral cooperation in this area.
