LAHORE: Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce and Industry President Zubair Ahmed Malik has arrived in New Delhi, India. He is leading a 65-member delegation to participate in the Fifth South Asian Business Leaders Conclave.
Trade and commerce ministers from all SAARC countries including Pakistan’s minister of state for commerce Khurram Dastagir Khan would participate in the event while Indian commerce minister will inaugurate the moot.
Dastagir will also hold meeting with his Indian counterpart on the sidelines of the conclave. Business leaders and representatives of different countries would hold meetings to boost political and economic co-operation among SAARC countries.
Zubair Ahmed Malik has said that the business community could bring revolutionary changes and further foster the pace of regional integration in South Asia. Many important policies that are supposed to boost trade are forwarded to authorities but implementation takes a long time which results in wastage of the effort, he added. The FPCCI chief hoped that important decisions would be taken during the conclave.
