ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s Ambassador to Germany Shahid Kamal has welcomed German support for preferential access to EU markets for Pakistani exports.
According to a message received on Wednesday, Pakistan appreciated German support in its efforts to strengthen economic ties with the EU. The statement said preferential access to EU markets was vital to help revive Pakistan’s battered economy.
German Foreign Minister Dr Guido Westerwelle, in a letter addressed to EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton and to EU Trade Commissioner Karel De Gucht, has advocated the need for easier access to EU markets for Pakistani products. Westerwelle called on the EU to do “everything possible to mitigate the impact of the disastrous floods in Pakistan on the country’s economic and social development.”
He stressed that the people of Pakistan must be given the chance to make the most of their country’s economic potential and build a brighter economic future through self-sustaining growth.
