Pakistan considering allowing petrol imports from India

Islamabad, Fri, 23 Mar 2012 ANI

Islamabad, Mar 23 (ANI): Pakistan is expected to bring out a notification next month allowing import of certain goods, including petrol and food items from India, Energy Secretary Ejaz Chaudhry has said.

Pakistan agreed last November to open up more trade with India by replacing a list of items its bigger neighbour can sell across the border with a shorter list of items that cannot be traded - a move regarded as key to improving commercial ties, The Dawn reports.

Pakistan has agreed in principle to grant access to imports from India under the Most Favoured Nation status, but has yet to fully implement the change.

"We have granted the Most Favoured Nation status to India. Our cabinet has approved it," Chaudhry said.

"Our commerce ministry is in the final stage of documentation of a notification to bring out certain items from negative list, including petrol. The notification should be out in 14 to 15 days," he added.

Pakistan currently bans imports of Indian gasoline, but allowed diesel imports from India in 2009, but no Indian supplies were sent in the face of preferential prices offered by Pakistan's allies such as Kuwait. (ANI)
