Indonesian CG urges efforts to boost bilateral trade

KARACHI: Dr. June Kuncoro Hadiningrat, Indonesia’s Consul General, has said that he wants bilateral trade with Pakistan to be boosted by both countries working together. A press release says that the Free Trade Agreement between Pakistan and Indonesia will definitely be good for both countries.
When speaking at the first meeting of the Pakistan Indonesia Business Council (PIBC) of FPCCI, the Indonesian CG said these things. Djumara Supriyadi, Consul for Economic Affairs, Irfan Iqbal, President of FPCCI, Abid Nisar, Chairman of Pakistan-Indonesia Business Council of FPCCI (PIBC), VP FPCCI Shabbir Mansha Churra, VP Shaukat Ali Omerson, former VP Mrs. Nazli Abid Nisar, Tariq Anees, Sultan Rehan, Sohail Nisar,
The Indonesian Consul General asked Pakistani businesspeople to get closer to Indonesian businesspeople and set up business-to-business meetings. In this way, the consulate will back you up completely. To increase trade between Pakistan and Indonesia, exporting products that are in high demand will help Pakistan’s exports.
Irfan Iqbal, President of the FPCCI, said that businesspeople from both countries should look at how well their products sell in their own markets and put trade with each other first. At the moment, one-way trade is more in Indonesia’s favour, while Pakistan needs to increase its exports to Indonesia.
Earlier, Abid Nisar, Chairman of the Pakistan-Indonesia Business Council (PIBC), welcomed the Indonesian Consul General and said that FPCCI is the highest body of trade and industry that works to solve problems that the business and industrial community faces.
“The main goal of the Pakistan Indonesia Business Council is to promote trade between the two countries and help find new trade routes and markets,” Abid said, adding that the Pakistani business community was looking forward to a Free Trade Agreement (FTA) between Pakistan and Indonesia as soon as possible.
The head of the PIBC thought that an FTA would give Pakistan access to the Indonesian market and make it easy for us to export non-traditional products. It would also help to balance trade between the two countries.
