While the world is facing economic problems such as the growing global energy prices and the interference in the supply and transit system of goods, both Pakistan and Iran have held the first specialized exhibition of Iranian goods in Islamabad to overcome existing challenges.
A 50-member Iranian delegation that included businessmen, traders, economic activists, and representatives of 32 domestic companies took part in the Pak-Iran international trade exhibition to find new opportunities to expand trade cooperation between Pakistan and Iran.
Iranian companies in different fields, including medical devices, food, building materials, information technology, energy, and car batteries, erected their stalls in the exhibition.
The Iranian traders say that the exhibition was a gateway for the knowledge-based products to be introduced in Pakistani markets.
Industrial activists believe that the event also provided a great chance for both Islamabad and Tehran to boost bartering in order to facilitate trade between the two countries.
The Iranian businessmen say that that this forum will help to promote several Iranian products, including carpets and rugs.
Pak-Iran international exhibition was the first commercial, economic joint event between the two neighboring countries after the 21st session of the Iran-Pakistan Joint Economic Commission which was held after five years in Islamabad last week.
The exhibition of Iranian goods was not only a chance for the knowledge-based products to be displayed to the public but also provided a great opportunity for the traders and businessmen of both countries to explore new venues for their markets.
