PESHAWAR (Pajhwok): Afghan and Pakistani traders have called for the creation of a visa-free entry regime for the business community.

They also suggested consultations with relevant stakeholders before the implementation of the new Afghan Transit Trade Agreement.

During a meeting at the Sarhad Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Peshawar, the businesspeople proposed the launch of a joint bonded carrier system.

The proposed system will address the issues affecting the transportation of goods.

Najeebullah Ahmadzai, Afghan consul general in Peshawar, said his country was committed to deepening bilateral trade and economic relations with Pakistan.

He added: “We have raised issues of Pakistan and Afghan traders and exporters with the authorities concerned in an effective manner and resolved them on a priority basis.

“It is a matter of great satisfaction that Islamabad and Kabul want to improve mutual economic and trade ties, which will help bring economic prosperity, development and lasting peace in the region.”
