Islamabad – FPCCI President Ghazanfar Bilour on Friday said Commonwealth Business Forum is a unique and historic opportunity to improve trade ties between Pakistan and 53 Commonwealth countries.

Talking to the British Deputy High Commissioner Richard Crowder, FPCCI head said that steps should be taken on all forums to increase the existing trade volume between the two countries, said a press release.

We have shared values, legal and regulatory systems and language that makes trade costs on average 19pc lower between Commonwealth countries, he added. Ghazanfar Bilour said that Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and Commerce Minister Pervaiz Malik will also attend the high profile event while he is leading a delegation of 52 businessmen who will debate the economic issues facing their countries in 2018 and beyond. Important decisions would be taken during the forum while the Queen of England will also participate in the event, he said.
