He was welcome by ICCI President Sardar Yasir Ilyas Khan and other office bearers of the chamber. During the discussion, Dr. Noel Israel Khokhar informed that Pakistan has great potential to increase bilateral trade with Ukraine and urged that the business community should leverage this potential to promote country’s exports. He said that by developing close cooperation with Ukraine, Pakistan could get easy access to the huge Central Asian market.
