KARACHI:Chairman PAJCCI, Zubair Motiwala has acknowledged recent statement of Afghan Ambassador to Pakistan, H.E. Dr. Omar Zakhilwal and reiterated that it is a dire need to remove deep-rooted mistrust in Pak-Afghan relationship that is not only hampering political dialogue but also significantly impacting the economic transition between both the countries in specific and regionally in general.
He further offered PAJCCI’s services as a bilateral entity, having its members in both the countries, to act as a joint platform to support overarching objective of peace, prosperity and economic connectivity.
Motiwala elaborated that Pakistan Afghanistan Joint Chamber (PAJCCI), since its inception, has been making all relevant endeavors to improve and stabilize confidence building measures between the two countries and ensuring that business communities across the border attain mutual benefits in terms of trade, transit, security, peace and prosperity.
He emphasized that in a recently held “Expo Pakistan” exhibition in Karachi, the Afghanistan delegation (under the leadership of Co-Chairman PAJCCI) was the second largest amongst all the international delegations participating in the event.
It illustrated the invincible bond between the business communities of Pakistan and Afghanistan proving that despite socio-political turmoil across the border, the people-to-people connect is highly commendable. This should be a realization for the government of both the countries that political whims should always follow economic imperatives and not otherwise.
