PITAD plans holding 15 seminars for businessmen

ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Institute of Trade and Development (PITAD) in collaboration with chambers and other trade associations has planned about 15 seminars on “Trade & Economic Issues” for business community in 2015-16.
The PITAD would also undertake a number of short and long training courses on “International Trade & Economy” and would establish “National & International” linkages to undertake quality research which would be translated into policy-making by the Ministry of Commerce.
According to the Ministry of Commerce (MoC), PITAD has already organized 10 seminars for private sector/business community on trade policy, export competitiveness, multilateral trading system, product diversification, market access initiatives for GSP Plus and Pak-India trade etc.
Pakistan was left out of EU’s GSP Plus Scheme because its GSP exports were more than 1 percent of the EU’s total imports. The Ministry of Commerce took up the matter with EU member states in consultation with Foreign Office for increasing this import vulnerability threshold. As a result of these concerted efforts EU revised its criterion upwards and took it to 2%.
