Amritsar: Punjab Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal on Monday said that permanent trade centers would be set up at Mohali and Amritsar in the next two years to boost the trade activities in the region.
Citing the examples of Dubai and Singapore, Badal pointed out that the economy of these World Class cities revolves around the trade promotion activities going on there.
He said that within two year Amritsar and Mohali, both would have permanent trade centers. Badal said that with the most likely permission of trading of 6,000 items through Attari Border by the end of this month, the border district of Amritsar would become a hub of large scale trade activities between South Asian countries.
He said that the Punjab Government has already requested the Union Government to set up a container Depot to boost the export of fresh vegetables, fruits and flowers as these were the perishable items which need air conditioned containers.
Pakistan Punjab Chief Minister-led delegation comprising members of his cabinet besides prominent traders and industrialists would visit Punjab from December 14 to 16. He said that being a land route, it would not only limit to the trading between India, Pakistan and Afghanistan but also cover the Russian provinces.
