PAK, TUNISIA TO SIGN PTA FOR IMPROVING BILATERAL TRADE

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan and Tunisia were negotiating for a preferential trade agreement (PTA), which would be signed this year for unleash huge opportunities for improving bilateral trade between the two countries.

This was stated by Ambassador of Tunisia Adel Elarbi, while addressing the business community during his visit to Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ICCI).

Chaouki Msolli, Deputy Head of Mission, Embassy of Tunisia was also present at the occasion.

Speaking on the occasion, he said that Tunisia was a gateway for Pakistan to enter the large markets of Africa.

But, he said that due to lack of awareness on both sides about potential for mutual cooperation, Pakistan could not exploit the geographical location of Tunisia for achieving benefits for its economy.

The Envoy said that Tunisia’s 80 percent trade was with European Union and Pakistan could promote its exports to Africa and EU by enhancing cooperation with Tunisia.

He said the future was of African continent while Tunisian government was encouraging foreign investors due to which many investors of China, Turkey, Iran and other countries had invested in Tunisia.

He stressed that Pakistani business community should also visit Tunisia to explore joint ventures and investment in its free economic zones.

He urged that ICCI should form a delegation for Tunisia and his embassy would extend support in making its visit successful.
