Govt to accord non-discriminatory access status to India: Dastgir

ISLAMABAD: The Minister of State for Commerce and Textile Khurram Dastgir said that rather than MFN status, the government is going to accord Non- Discriminatory Access (NDA) status to India.

Talking to media persons in the Parliament House, Khurram Dastgir said that India has already given MFN status to Pakistan, however it has not given access to its market. While India has access to 82 percent market of Pakistan but we have not given status of MFN to India. He said any final decision in this regard would be taken after consultation with all stakeholders.

Dastgir informed that the government would make efforts to provide level playing field to its investors in Indian markets.

The minister said the government is working to containerize the Wagha border to save the time and remove the security issues at the border. Facilitations would be provided at Wagha border to boost the bilateral trade through it.

Khurram Dastgir further appraised that the government is taking measures for effective implementation of all three trade agreements with India done in the previous tenure. He further noted that Pakistan would participate in SAARC business enclave in India.
