Japan for boosting mutual trade with Pakistan

SIALKOT: The Ambassador of Japan in Pakistan Hiroshi OE has vowed to make all-out efforts to boost mutual trade ties between Pakistan and Japan, saying that the time was ripe to further strengthen these mutual trade ties between the two countries.

The japans Ambassador visited several leading industrial units in Sialkot, Daska and Uggoki, amid tight security, during the first day of his two-day visit to export-oriented Sialkot city. Hiroshi OE witnessed the international standard craftsmanship of Sialkot based artisans and he highly hailed the unique export culture of Sialkot.

The Sialkot exporters told the visiting Japanese Ambassador that there was no doubt to say that Sialkot made Sports Goods, Surgical Instruments, Leather Products, Gloves of all sorts, Textiles Items, Sports Wear, Martial Arts Uniforms & Accessories, Musical Instruments, Kitchen Ware, Hollow Ware, Knives, Cutlery items and Military Uniform Badges etc. could find a good market in Japan.
