India and Pakistan should do business in rupees and not in dollars in order to enhance bilateral trade and economic cooperation between the two neighbouring countries, according to Mr Imran Sohail, leader of a nine-member delegation of Jhang Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Pakistan.
He was speaking at an interactive session organised by PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry here today.
Mr Sohail said improving economic ties will help in resolving larger issues, and political relations should not affect the prospective business ties between the two countries
He hoped India will be granted most favoured nation status soon and proposed that Indo-Pak travel be made easy with the grant of multiple-entry visa to multiple cities.
Since Pakistan has been facing a severe energy crisis, he said that India could help Pakistan to meet its power needs.
Mr Zirgham Raza, First Secretary (Trade), High Commission of Pakistan, said both the governments are working on technical aspects to facilitate bilateral trade between the two countries, including issues related to visas, opening of bank branches and standardisation of products.
