ISLAMABAD (INP): The Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FPCCI) on Sunday said relations between Pakistan and Brunei were cordial, but the volume of trade was unsatisfactory, which must be enhanced. “The business community will fully cooperate with the government to improve trade ties between the two brotherly nations,” said Abdur Rauf Alam, President FPCCI. Talking to Pakistan’s High Commissioner-designate to Brunei Gen (r) Tariq Rasheed Khan, he said that per capita income of Brunei exceeded that of USA and that their businessmen were investing around the world including China, while our government had still to make efforts to lure them to Pakistan. Secretary General UBG Zubair Tufail, VPs of FPCCI Zafar Bakhtwari and Riaz Khattak, Chairman Coordination Malik Sohail and others were also present on the occasion. He said that both the countries had established a joint investment company while the last meeting of joint economic commission was held in 2008, which was discouraging.
