Afghanistan gets presidency of ECO CCI

Afghanistan gets presidency of ECO CCI

Mar 10, 2018 - 12:19

PESHAWAR (Pajhwok): Afghanistan has got presidency of the Economic Cooperation Organisation chamber of commerce and industry (ECO-CCI).

The vice-presidential slot has been handed over to the Iran Chamber of Commerce and Industry. The secretariat of ECO CCI will continue rotating among Turkey, Iran and Pakistan three years each.

The ECO emphasised early implementation of a preferential trade agreement among the member states to boost intra-region trade.

Tajikistan was yet to ratify the regional trade agreement while Iran had not finalised its concessionary, positive and negative list of commodities, said the Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FPCCI).

Meetings of the 16th general assembly, 24th executive committee and specialised committees of ECO chamber of commerce and industry were held in Tehran.

Afghanistan, Pakistan, Turkey, Iran and Kazakhstan participated for the first time in the meetings. The Iran Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture hosted the meetings.
