Bosnia looks to boost trade with Pakistan


KARACHI – A buying delegation from Bosnia is currently on a visit to Pakistan, with the aim to search new ways of boosting the bilateral trade volume – standing at around two million euros per annum.
The delegation, which is presently visiting various industries and factories in Lahore, Sialkot etc, would visit Karachi on Thursday to meet exporters and members of various chambers and associations, sources said.
The foreign delegation would also visit leading industrial units in the city. A majority of the Pakistani products have good potential in Bosnia and Pakistani businessmen should establish direct trade links in Bosnia to grab a better market share, sources said. To enhance bilateral trade, both countries need to emphasise on non-traditional items for mutual benefit.
The Bosnian delegation is visiting at a time when the second Sarajevo Business Forum is taking place in the foreign country. According to sources, Pakistani made-ups reach to Bosnia, a gate way to European Union countries through other countries, had triggered an increase in prices. Direct export and import of goods were needed to enhance trade ties.
