Our foreign policy should focus more on the region to gain more benefits

Dr. Noor Fatima (Political Economist): This is the world of integration and you have to create links with countries to prosper. Pakistan has a very active foreign policy at the moment and Islamabad is trying to create friendly relations with all the countries. As far as Central Asian countries are concerned, we have strong historical and brotherly ties with all of them. We can benefit from immense hydro-carbon resources present in the Central Asian states. Our foreign policy should focus more on the region to gain more benefits. In the previous years, the momentum of enhancing trade ties with our central Asian friends was not fast. However, the current government is focusing more on reaping maximum benefits from ties with these countries.
