Chambers of Commerce and Industry (SCCI) on Wednesday hailed the
optimistic outcome of Indo-Pak foreign ministerial meeting
held in New Delhi.

"Durable harmony and resolution of all core issue
through peaceful parleys is pre-requisite for stability and
economic growth in the region," SCCI`s Pakistan chapter chief
and trade leader Iftikhar Ali Malik said in a statement here.

He said that the constructive discussion in congenial
atmosphere at meeting held between External Affairs Minister S
M Krishna and his Pakistani counterpart Hina Rabbani Khar on
all important issues confronting the two nuclear powers
including Kashmir issue is a good omen for the region.

India and Pakistan today announced new Confidence

trading days and expanding travel to include tourism and
religious aspects.

SCCI has fully supported the government-industry
partnership and remained engaged in dialogue with governments
of the SAARC region, he said.

Malik said successful SAARC conference held Islamabad

relations between the two nuclear states.

SCCI can play a pivotal role in deepening and widening
economic and regional co-operation with special focus on
stamping out the ever increasing menace of terror in the
region, he said.
