Delay in MFN status to India against Pakistan’s interests: Farida Rashid

ISLAMABAD: Islamabad Women Chamber of Commerce and Industry (IWCCI) President Farida Rashid said that granting of most-favoured-nation (MFN) status to India shouldn’t be delayed anymore as it is a matter of national interest.


Granting MFN status to India will accelerate development of industry, agriculture and services sector while it would provide relief to masses facing high inflation, said Farida Rashid, President IWCCI.

Talking to business community, she said that improved Pakistan-India relation will have a positive impact on the region while whole world will benefit from it.

She called upon EU to allow zero duty on Pakistan exports from January 2014 so that economy can get sigh of relief.

Farida Rashid said that there is no justification in upward revision of the key policy rate by the SBP.
