PAKISTAN: Seeks Indian support for GSP+ on EU exports
Pakistan's largest trade body, the Karachi Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCCI), has urged the Indian government to support Pakistan in getting GSP+ status for exports to the EU.
KCCI vice president Junaid Esmail Makda communicated the request from the Pakistani business community to Shrimati Rita Menon, the secretary of textiles at the government of India, during a recent visit to India. He was in the country to participate in the 47th India International Garments Fair.
Makda said that two-way trade in raw materials would boost business between Pakistan and India.
The European Parliament is considering temporary duty concessions on some Pakistani textiles to help the country recover from the flooding that devastated much of the country last year.
