Pak-US Business Council has said a bipartisan bill moved in the US Senate to establish duty-free export zones along Pak-Afghan border will produce economic benefits for both countries besides peace in the region.

Lauding the move, the Chairman Pak US Business Council and President SAARC Chamber Iftikhar Ali Malik said the bill would establish Reconstruction Opportunity Zones in Pakistan and Afghanistan’s border regions to allow certain products from these areas to enter the US duty free.
