In a breakthrough development for trade between India and Pakistan, the first consignment of 10 metric tons of Indian newsprints has entered Pakistan.

India’s Khanna Paper Mills sent its first truck to Pakistan’s leading dailies-The Dawn and the Jang Group.

Till now, Pakistan had been receiving newsprint via Dubai for which they had to pay a high transportation price. With the opening and the inclusion of newsprints in the Positive List, the material can now be sent directly to Pakistan.

Following several rounds of talks, India and Pakistan approved several steps to dismantle hurdles in the way of increasing official trade to six billion US dollars by 2014.
