[IMG]Commerce Minister Humayun Akhtar Khan has expressed hope for further improvement in trade relations with France, Italy, United Kingdom, Germany and in particular with the European Union Commercial Section
Commerce Minister Humayun Akhtar Khan has expressed hope that his current four-nation visit to France, Italy, United Kingdom and Germany will lead to further improvement in trade relations with these countries and in particular with the European Union. Speaking to the London-based Pakistani media at the Pakistan High Commission, the Minister who reached UK on Monday after holding talks with his Italian counterpart in Rome said the primary purpose of his visit is to lobby for better market access for Pakistani products in the EU.
Mr. Khan said both President and the Prime Minister during their visits to the various European countries in the recent past had been giving importance on market access for the Pakistani produce. Pakistan High Commissioner to UK Dr.Maleeha Lodhi, Minister Economic, Pakistan Embassy in Brussels Mr. Tariq Iqbal Puri and Commercial Counsellor Saira Najeeb Ahmad were also present on the occasion. Europe, he said, is Pakistan's largest trading partner with 26 per cent of country's exports going to the different countries of Europe.
Speaking about his meeting with the British Trade Minister Ian McCartney, Mr. Khan said Britain is Pakistan's largest trading partner within the EU and is equally supportive of Pakistan's effort to initiate free trade negotiations with the EU.
Humayun Akhtar Khan said the British Trade Minister has extended him an invitation to visit UK this July for further discussion on promoting trade and explore additional investment opportunities.
Answering another question, Mr. Khan said the Government was seized about issue concerning EU ban on exports of Pakistani seafood and steps are being taken to remove the objections of the EU so that the exports may be resumed at the earliest. He said the Third Generation Agreement with EU was ratified by Pakistan in 2005 and now EU has to implement the re-admission agreement on immigration, which Pakistan has already approved, but the European Union has yet to do so. The Minister has now travelled to Germany, which holds the current presidency of the EU for talks with his German counterpart.
