Ambassador of Switzerland Bénédict de Cerjat has said that although trade balance between Pakistan and Switzerland was largely in favor of his country but the trade cannot be one way as it works well when everybody earns profits therefore, Pakistan needs to focus more on improving its exports to Switzerland.

“Although it is not my job to increase Pakistan’s exports to Switzerland as it is purely the role of Pakistan’s Ambassador yet I can help and contribute because at the end of the day, if you export more textiles, we will also be able to export more Swiss machinery that would not only improve your productivity but also create a win-win situation for both the friendly countries”, he added while exchanging views at a meeting during his visit to the Karachi Chamber of Commerce & Industry (KCCI).

President KCCI M. Shariq Vohra, Senior Vice President KCCI M. Saqib Goodluck, Vice President KCCI Shamsul Islam Khan, Chairman Diplomatic Missions & Embassies Liaison Subcommittee Junaid Mundia, Former President KCCI Majyd Aziz and KCCI Managing Committee Members were also present on the occasion.

Swiss Ambassador said, “Even though we have very good numbers in terms of investment and I hope it will continue to be the case but we don’t have good numbers in trade which needs to be focused.”
