    LAHORE, May 22 (APP) Prime Minister addressing the inauguration ceremony said the facility of Expo Centre was first of its kind in Punjab adding it could be compared with any Expo centre in the world.

    He hoped it would serve the nation in the years to come and would prove a gateway to the global trade besides helping the export sector.

    He said the Expo Centre would provide opportunities to private sector and help overcome unemployment and poverty in the country.

    “ International bilateral trade is very important for the economy of the country and Pakistan wishes to improve its bilateral trade,” he said.

    Gilani said Pakistan was interested in bilateral trade not only with European Union but also with the US.

    He said Pakistan already has trade relations with China, Sri Lanka and Iran.

    The Prime Minister said more Free Trade Zones were in the pipeline in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa for improving international trade as well as to facilitate the exporters.

    He said the government wanted to facilitate common man and it has taken tangible steps to eliminate poverty.

    The Prime Minister said being a joint venture,the Lahore Expo Centre would provide more opportunities of cooperation between the federal and provincial governments.



    Gilani said expo centres would also be built in Multan and Faisalabad in future since these cities have a major role in textile and handicrafts trade.

    Punjab Chief Minister Mian Shahbaz Sharif, Acting Punjab Governor Rana Muhammad Iqbal, Federal Minister for Commerce and Trade Makhdoom Ameen Fahim and Federal Minister for Kashmir-Gilgit and Baltistan Mian Manzoor Ahmad Wattoo were also present on the occasion.
