SIALKOT: Ambassador of Tajikistan Sher Ali Jononov on Saturday agreed to enhance bilateral trade with Pakistan and invited members of the Sialkot Chamber of Commerce and Industry to visit his country to organise trade exhibitions.
“We are rich in hydel energy and we are going to export hydel energy to Pakistan to meet growing demand,” he said during a meeting with the SCCI president and its members.
He said that officials of Pakistan, Afghanistan and Tajikistan would meet on March 15 to discuss ways of boosting trade among the three countries.
He expressed keen interest in importing sports and surgical goods from Pakistan. He said his country would supply hydel energy to Pakistan and officials of the two countries would hold a meeting very soon in this regard.
SCCI Acting President Mir Alamgir Meyer, while addressing the gathering, said, “Pakistan could be a gateway to Central Asia for trade and commerce.”
Similarly, he said Central Asian states, including Tajikistan, could be a very strong market for Pakistan with immense opportunities to boost trade.
