KARACHI: Europe gives importance to Gwadar Port and impressed with the mega projects being developed in Balochistan.

This was stated by Jonathan Webber, head of International Trade Birmingham Chamber of Commerce and Industry, while talking at Balochistan Economic Forum, on Tuesday, said a statement issued here.

He said it was important to teach the small and medium enterprises how to deal with the foreign markets so that proper trade missions could be sent and exchange of business could take place.

He said another mission of the chamber would visit the province in November 2007 and assured chamber’s cooperation in promotion of business and trade.

President Balochistan Economic Forum, Sardar Shoukat Popalzai said UK could help in transfer of technology, direct investment, joint ventures in energy, fisheries, fruit processing, agro food, livestock and mineral development and tourism.
