ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s State Minister for Commerce and Textile Khurram Dastagir Khan is likely to travel to India next month for the SAARC business meeting and will meet Commerce Minister Anand Sharma, as the two sides gradually restart talks after months of tensions.

The Pakistani Minister would visit India from January 15-17 to attend SAARC Business Leaders Conclave.

He will hold talks with Sharma to discuss the bilateral trade issues, especially trade liberalisation matters.

Media reports here said major decisions were expected in the commerce ministers’ talks, and that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is likely to announce new measures seeking improved trade and economic ties with New Delhi.
