Delegation head, Khan Zaman Sarwar said that the business community of Pakistan and UAE should take full advantages of the trade opportunities available in Pakistan. Pakistan is a country rich in natural resources, agriculture, minerals and there are vast opportunities for profitable investments in technology, transportation, travel and tourism, health,I.T, food security and many other sectors. Pakistan can benefit from the valuable expertise in the field of agriculture. Khan Zaman Sarwar proposed a number of positive suggestions regarding mutual trade interests, Mr. Abdullah Al-Saleh said that he would convey these suggestions to the competent authorities and insha’Allah we will make every effort to promote trade between the two countries in various sectors. Khan Zaman Sarwar said that if ferry service started between Karachi to Jabal Ali Port Dubai or Khalifa Port Abu Dhabi between the two countries, immediate access to fresh fruits, vegetables and meat etc. would be possible which would enable locals and others to enjoy fresh vegetables of Pakistan without storage. Will be able to reach the dining table from the farm as soon as possible, which will also significantly reduce the prices of these food items. Because the prices of food items brought by air are high, if the UAE and Pakistan agree to start ferry service, the move will also benefit both countries economically. Leading figure in the field of travel and tourism and hotel and environment, Area Manager, Coral Beach Resort, Sharjah and Ajman Palace Hotel, Iftikhar Hamdani said that there is a need to work on real basis in the field of hotel industry and travel and tourism in Pakistan. Besides, there are many rare varieties of fruits in Pakistan, but unfortunately they have not been properly marketed. Proper marketing of any product is very important for its introduction.

Mr,Sohail Khawar, an importer of Pakistani products in the UAE, said that while talking about the import of fresh fruits and vegetables from Pakistan, he said that commercial flights were closed due to the Corona epidemic. In this regard, if the concerned airlines give some concessions to the importers, the price of other seasonal fruits especially Mangoes will come down.
