KARACHI: Sindh Governor Imran Ismail has appreciated the measures taken by the government to control Covid-19 pandemic, which is evident from the participation of foreign delegations in the 17th International Trade and Industrial Fair, a statement said on Tuesday.

Speaking at the inauguration of the exhibition, the Sindh governor said the Expo Centre Karachi is the hub of trade fairs, adding that this arena would soon be modernised, while the vaccination centre would be limited to one hall to facilitate and encourage the foreign visitors.

The three-day event will conclude on November 18, 2021. Diplomats from Iran and Belarus also visited the exhibition.

As many as 54 local and foreign delegates are participating in the expo. Several companies from Belarus and Iran have setup over 100 stalls, showcasing their products. Business-to-business (B2B) meetings were also held.

Andrei Metelitsa, ambassador of the Republic of Belarus to Pakistan, discussed bilateral relations and welcomed all kinds of cooperation with Pakistan.


The bilateral relations with Pakistan are based on mutual connectivity, he said, adding that Pakistan would be an important trading hub, going forward.

The International Trade and Industrial Fair is an important forum for the promotion of petrochemicals, tyres and other products, he said.

The diplomat said bilateral trade between the two countries is $120 million and there is much more potential to increase the same.

“Belarus is the member of Eurasia Group, and the entire group is willing to further develop trade and investment relationship with Pakistan.”
