Ambassador vows to promote direct trade with Oman.


Pakistan's Ambassador-designate to Oman KK Ahsan Wagan has emphasised that he will promote direct trade and commercial relations between Pakistan and Oman as most of the Pakistani products are usually landing in Oman's market via Dubai.

Exchanging views with Karachi Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCCI) Senior Vice President Arshad Islam during his visit to the chamber, the envoy said, "Trade and commercial relations remain very close to my heart, therefore, I will try my best to fully facilitate business-to-business interaction between Pakistan and Oman business communities."

He was of the opinion that forging strong trade and commercial linkages was very important and a key issue for all the Pakistani diplomats working in different countries around the world.

"Economic diplomacy is very crucial because its effects are on the society, community and people of the country. If exports rise, these will in turn bring foreign exchange, generate massive employment opportunities and reduce poverty in the country," he added.
