The Pak Banker - - FRONT PAGE -

Busi­ness­men of Be­larus and Pak­istan will dis­cuss co­op­er­a­tion prospects in Minsk on Tues­day, the Be­laru­sian Cham­ber of Com­merce and In­dus­try said.

The Be­laru­sian-Pak­istani Busi­ness Fo­rum is in­cluded into the pro­gramme of the meet­ing of the Be­laru­sian-Pak­istani Busi­ness Coun­cil and bi­lat­eral talks with Pak­istani busi­ness cir­cles. It is ex­pected that Prime Min­is­ter Nawaz Sharif will take part in the open­ing of the busi­ness fo­rum, Be­laru­sian news agency 'BelTA' re­ported on Mon­day.

Busi­ness­men of the two coun­tries will get an op­por­tu­nity to dis­cuss trade and eco­nomic co­op­er­a­tion as well as the ways to ex­pand co­op­er­a­tion and im­ple­ment joint projects in the most promis­ing ar­eas. Pak­istani com­pa­nies are in­ter­ested in es­tab­lish­ing busi­ness ties with Be­laru­sian com­pa­nies in the chem­i­cal and textile sec­tors, and in­dus­try (cot­ton, fab­ric and ma­te­ri­als sales), me­chan­i­cal en­gi­neer­ing ( the pur­chase of in­dus­trial, quarry and agri­cul­tural equip­ment, com­po­nent parts to Be­laru­sian ve­hi­cles).

Po­ten­tial part­ners are also in­ter­ested in the pro­cess­ing and sales of raw ma­te­ri­als for the con­struc­tion in­dus­try and the ex­port of agri­cul­tural prod­ucts (veg­eta­bles, fruit, grain crops, rice and sun­flower oil). The Be­laru­sian Cham­ber of Com­merce and In­dus­try in­vites Be­laru­sian com­pa­nies and or­ga­ni­za­tions in­ter­ested in ex­pand­ing con­tacts with Pak­istani com­pa­nies to take part in the busi­ness fo­rum.

Pak­istani Min­is­ter of Com­merce Khur­ram Dast­gir Khan noted ear­lier that the in­ten­si­fi­ca­tion of the trade and eco­nomic co­op­er­a­tion would pro­mote the de­vel­op­ment of the two coun­tries. He ex­pressed the hope that co­op­er­a­tion would open doors for Pak­istan to the Euro­pean re­gion and for Be­larus to South Asia and the Mid­dle East.
