Faisal Moiz Khan, President North Karachi Association of Trade & Industry (NKATI), while welcoming the inclusion of Pakistan in the seller list by the world-renowned online retail company Amazon, termed the move of the present government as excellent, stated that the business community appreciates the efforts of Prime Minister Imran Khan and Abdul Razak Dawood, Adviser for Commerce & Investment, as the move will result in billions in investment and vast employment opportunities, also boost the country’s exports.
In a statement, NKATI president said that Amazon is a huge global distribution network, which is successfully providing services all over the world including Europe and USA. Earlier, Pakistan was not included in Amazon’s seller list due to which shipments from Pakistan were not directly on Amazon.
“Due to the efforts of the government, direct shipments will now be possible on Amazon and Pakistan’s exporters will reap significant benefits and will be able to easily sell their products to consumers through Amazon, which will boost Pakistan’s trade and exports”, he hoped.
Faisal Moiz Khan further said that Amazon’s business platform can significantly increase Pakistan’s business activities as not only textiles but all kinds of goods are sold on Amazon. He proposed, if the government really wants to boost and double the exports, the government should provide professional, technical services to people working at Amazon through TDAP and a significant fund from the EDF to be allocated so that it can be used to promote trade & exports.
Mr. Moiz also suggested that efforts be made to include Pakistan in the selling list of other Amazon-style international companies so that Pakistan’s exports could be significantly boosted.
