The 1st Caspian Economic Forum, which will be held in Avaza on August 12th, attracts not only regional players, but also participants from remote countries. Pakistan will also join the forum. This was stated by members of the Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce and Industry at a meeting with representatives of the Embassy of Turkmenistan.
Pakistani business is looking for opportunities to expand trade and economic relations, including with the Caspian “five” and the countries of Central Asia. Turkmenistan can become not only a partner, but also a transit hub in the way of the spread of Pakistani business on the continent.
The starting point for expanding the partnership will be the creation of the Turkmen-Pakistani Council, which the parties agreed on in March of this year. Based on this Council, the regional market can be replenished with Pakistani export goods: agricultural products, chemicals, textiles and leather goods.
A number of European and Asian companies also expressed their desire to take part in the Caspian Economic Forum.
The forum will include an international conference, an exhibition of innovative technologies of the Caspian Sea, negotiations on the implementation of investment projects and programs, the creation and development of special free economic zones, consultations on the improvement of national legislation, standards and rules in the trade and economic sphere.
Participants will also discuss cooperation in the digital economy, the development of direct links between regions and cities, and prospects for creating joint ventures.
