A 35 member-delegation of South Asia Free Media Association from Pakistan arrived in Wagah on Friday through the Wagah border for deliberation with their counterparts in India.
The delegation from Pakistan is being led by the Secretary General of SAFMA of Pakistan chapter Imtiaz Alam.
Speaking to reporters, Alam said people from all walks of life were in the delegation of SAFMA. They include doctors, educationists, traders, industrialists and politicians. They will interact with their counterparts in India to explore more and more business opportunities, he said.
These kinds of delegations help strengthen relations between the masses of two nations. Traders from Pakistan who are the part of the delegation during their stay in India would find opportunities for business and trade dealing with their counterparts and similarly Indians would also get the same opportunity and find the way to come to Pakistan, Alam said.
He said governments of India and Pakistan should forthwith ease the visa norms so that a common citizen of either country could visit each other's country any time.
