PESHAWAR – Convener Federation of Pakistan Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FPCCI)’s Central Standing Committee on Railways Zia-ul-Haq Sarhadi has demanded the federal government to take practical steps for restoration of goods train between Pakistan, Iran and Turkey.
In a statement, Sarhadi said that goods train service is a good source of business among the three countries. He said restoration of goods train service will not only help in supply of merchandise in neighbouring countries in limited time but also at reasonable price due to low transportation charges and taxes.
Increase in business among three neighbouring countries will also help in strengthening of relations in the region and benefit a large number of people, he added.
Zia Sarhadi who is also former vice president of Pak-Afghan Joint Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PAJCCI) and Sarhad Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SCCI), said the train can also be run for promotion of tourism.
