Trade with In­dia pick­ing up

Maritime Gateway - - International News -

The bi­lat­eral trade be­tween Pak­istan and Afghanistan has dropped from $2.5 bil­lion to a mere $500 mil­lion, mainly due to fre­quent bor­der clo­sures be­tween two na­tions and im­port bans. On the con­trary, Afghanistan is hope­ful of dou­bling bi­lat­eral trade with In­dia to $2 bil­lion by 2020 and seeks pri­vate in­vest­ments and co­op­er­a­tion in var­i­ous sec­tors. The Afghan Gov­ern­ment seeks in­vest­ment from In­dia in the field of agri­cul­ture, min­ing, heavy in­dus­tries, ed­u­ca­tion, health­care, en­ergy, IT and trans­porta­tion.
