Ludhiana, Feb 5: Industry body PHD Chamber today said it will organise a four-day Indo-Pak trade expo in Ludhiana and Jalandhar.
The expo in Ludhiana and Jalandhar will start on February 15 and March 7, respectively.
Stating this, PHD Chamber Punjab Committee Chairman Rajiv Bali said, "There is a lot of trade potential with Pakistan. If trade takes a front seat, automatically, other issues shall get pushed to the back seat".
"Booming bilateral trade may well be the strongest pillar of Indo-Pak rapprochement so much so that it shall not only overtake the pace of general confidence-building but also have a substantial impact on each other’s mutual perceptions," he said.
Bali said, "As per a recently released US report, removal of tariff and non-tariff barriers can result in an expansion of trade between the two countries from current USD 2 to 2.5 billion to estimates ranging from USD 20 to USD 50 billion.
