Earlier this month, Deputy Chairman Senate, Senator Saleem Mandviwala has underscored the need for boosting trade and economic ties between Pakistan and Japan for mutual benefit of the two sides.

He said that the trade volume between the two sides is less than the size of relations which the two countries enjoyed since decades.

Senator Mandviwala proposed frequent interaction and increased exchange of delegation at parliamentary level, saying that such interaction would pave the way for further boosting trade and economic ties.

He also emphasized that parliamentary friendship groups of both sides also need to play more vibrant and active role and both sides need to get maximum benefit from the multi-level interaction by setting some goals and achieve them through mutual cooperation.
