Trade route with Tajikistan urged


ISLAMABAD: The Ministry of Commerce on Wednesday urged the Gilgit-Baltistan (GB) government to build a road to explore Tajikistan’s markets for Pakistani goods and further link it to the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) so that the region could avail economic opportunities.

In a meeting with GB Chief Minister Hafiz Hafeez-ur-Rehman, Commerce Minister Khurram Dastagir Khan said that already a jeep track, which runs through Ghizer district to the Wakhan border, connects Pakistan to Tajikistan and has been used by traders for a long time.
