A large number of Indian and Pakistani businessmen have expressed keenness to resume trade ties between the two countries at the earliest.

At a convention, organised by Pakistan-India People's Forum for Peace and Democracy at Karachi last week, businessmen on both sides of the border expressed their desire to resume bilateral trade ties, says Tapan K Bose, General Secretary of PIFPDP of India Chapter.

Bose said he led a 250-member delegation to attend the three-day convention from Dec 12-14, which was attended by more than 2000 Pakistan nationals including top businessmen, traders, journalists, doctors, politicians, and academicians among others.

Participants at the convention discussed various trade-related issues and the loss both sides had to suffer due to the "unhealthy" relations, he said adding they favoured opening road link from Baramullah in Kashmir to RawalPindi in Pakistan to boost business.
