Time to resume India trade, doors will open: Pak’s top industrialist | India News,The Indian Express
He said the Kashmir issue had to be resolved with “small steps” to “bring temperatures down”. He also spoke on opening up Bollywood to Pakistani actors and India's IPL to Pakistani cricketers.
Pakistan’s top industrialist Mian Mohammed Mansha believes it is time his country and India resume trade, and improve relations for their betterment.
Mansha, who heads the Nishat conglomerate, Pakistan’s No. 1 business group, told The Indian Express from Dubai where he is at the moment, that there are “many synergies” between the two countries that can come into play once trade begins.
“I feel very passionately that we need to get our things sorted out with India. Now whatever the issues that are impeding, let them be there. But once they come to one another’s country, through trade, tourism – religious tourism or normal tourism — I think the doors will start opening,” 75-year-old Mansha said.
He said the Kashmir issue had to be resolved with “small steps” to “bring temperatures down”. He also spoke on opening up Bollywood to Pakistani actors and India’s IPL to Pakistani cricketers.
Earlier this year, the industrialist, counted as the most influential voice of the business community in Pakistan, had called for resumption of trade with India at a meeting of the Lahore Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
