Ex­pand­ing into Su­dan

Enterprise - - Editor’s desk - Saad Khaleel USA

The last En­ter­prise cover story pro­vided a com­pre­hen­sive view of Pak­istan’s trade prospects with Su­dan, a coun­try that seems to be away from the se­vere Western re­ces­sion. As Os­man Elmahdi Os­man high­lighted, the scope for Pak­istan’s goods and ser­vices sec­tor to cap­ture the Su­danese mar­ket is enor­mous. His visit was highly en­cour­ag­ing for our coun­try which could gain im­mense ben­e­fits from Su­dan’s free trade zones. Su­dan has strength­ened its part­ner­ship with emerg­ing as well as ad­vanced coun­tries, es­pe­cially China, Malaysia and In­dia. This has en­abled the coun­try to build a re­source-backed in­fra­struc­ture based on pub­lic ser­vice projects as well as pri­vate sec­tor de­vel­op­ment. En­ter­prise in­formed us about the meet­ings that Os­man Elmahdi held with im­por­tant in­dus­try lead­ers in Karachi. Un­doubt­edly, it is the strong role of Pak­istan’s trade bod­ies like FPCCI, KATI and REAP among oth­ers, that en­hances the coun­try’s rep­re­sen­ta­tion in over­seas mar­kets
