JALALABAD (PANinfo-icon): A newly established trade centre to facilitate exportation of commercial goods to Pakistaninfo-icon was inaugurated in eastern Nangarhar province on Thursday, an official said.

The USAIDinfo-icon-funded project was established in Jalalabad, the provincial capital, as a result of a contract with the Nangarhar chapter of the Chamber of Commerce and Industries, said Mohammad Qasim Yusufi, an official of the chamber.

He said the centre would assist Afghan traders exporting commercial goods to Pakistan under the new Afghanistaninfo-icon-Pakistan Transit Trade Agreement that went into effect on Tuesday.

However, he said the two countries had not been able so far to implement the landmark trade agreement to any meaningful extent.

Qasim said the new trade centre would help address concerns of Afghan importers with regard to shipping their trade goods to Pakistan.
