Czech Minister pledge support to Pakistan’s GSP+

Prague, November 23, 2013 (PPI-OT): Minister of State for Commerce, Textile and Privatisation Engr. Khurram Dastgir Khan continued his Eastern Europe economic diplomacy mission in Czech Republic, where he met Foreign Minister Jan Kohout and Deputy Trade Minister Milan Hovorka.

The Minister of State solicited Czech support in the EU Parliament in anticipation of a plenary vote in mid-December 2013 on European Union’s grant of GSP+ trade preferences to Pakistan for three years.

“The Czech Republic has been a trusted and longstanding friend of Pakistan. I deeply appreciate that both Czech ministers pledged their government’s support to Pakistan’s GSP+ in the EU Parliament. We also explored in depth the abundant possibilities of Pak-Czech economic cooperation in energy, coal mining, automobiles and mutual investment. Visa facilitation and joint ventures were also discussed,” MoS Commerce said in a statement issued here by the Pakistan Embassy.

Khurram Dastgir Khan instructed Pakistani Ambassador Mr. Tajammul Altaf to expedite consideration of the proposed agreement on economic cooperation between Czech Republic and Pakistan. The Minister will conclude his Eastern Europe mission in Poland early next week.
