LAHORE (APP): A 13-member trade delegation of Lahore Chamber of Commerce & Industry (LCCI), headed by its president Mian Nauman Kabir, Sunday left for a seven-day visit to the Islamic Republic of Iran to explore trade and investment opportunities as well as possibilities of joint ventures between the private sectors of the two countries.
The chamber’s spokesman told the media that other members of the delegation were Khwaja Shahzad Nasir, Mubashar Naseer Butt, Aqib Asif, Muhammad Arshad, Muhammad Furqan Sarwar, Rana Ali Ahmad Khan, Khwaja Noman Ahmed, Muhammad Amin Atif, Shahram Chaudhry, Atif Amin, Mian Farooq Kabir and Mohammad Moazzam Razi.
The delegation would have meetings and visit Mashhad, Tehran, Isfhan Chambers of Commerce & Industry and the offices of trade organisations.
The LCCI president hoped that the visit would not only bring Pakistani and Iranian businessmen closer but also open doors on joint ventures. He said that it was a proven fact that the economic prosperity lies in integration with neighbouring countries. Pakistan is eagerly looking forward to expanding trade relations with Iran as there is a vast scope for trade boosting between the two countries.
He said that Iranian businessmen were keen to work hand in hand with their Pakistani counterparts; therefore, Pakistani businessmen should avail the opportunity to the maximum. Joint ventures between Pakistani and Iranian businesspeople are the only way to explore the huge opportunities generated after lifting of sanctions on Iran.
