WTO approval for Pakistan to export tariff free exports of products to EU states “a major diplomatic achievement”

Islamabad: Foreign Minister Ms Hina Rabbani Khar says World Trade Organization WTO’s approval for Pakistan to export tariff free exports of products to European Union EU states is “a major diplomatic achievement.”

Responding to questions Thursday in Senate‚ she said it will help provide preferential access to Pakistani goods to European markets. She said it took two years to take process to successful culmination. She noted that countries like Bangladesh dropped their reservations to the package due to persuasion by Pakistan.

She said Pakistan-EU relations have improved significantly as they have established strategic dialogue and held summit level interaction. She hoped Pakistan would also get GSP plus facility from EU in 2014.
