New govt in Pak expected to implement Safta
India on Monday exuded confidence that the new government in Islamabad will take immediate steps to implement the South Asian Free Trade Agreement with New Delhi and take necessary measures, including duty changes, to facilitate trade. “We are looking toward the new government in Pakistan to take more positive steps in fulfilling the agreement in Safta, which it has acceded to but not implemented. We are looking at the new administration in Pakistan to look at this positively because it is an advantageous situation for them,” commerce and industry minister Kamal Nath told reporters here after the third meeting of the Safta ministerial council.
