Vice President Pakistan
The implementation of Cargo XML standards by Customs and IATA, marks a golden milestone in the aviation industry of Pakistan as it will bring Pakistan at par with the global cargo industry standards. Trading of commodities exist since the beginning of mankind, and has progressed from the boundaries of two villages to a global scale now where aviation plays a key role in the transport of the cargo. The much needed technological advantage in the aviation will put Pakistan at the forefront of aviation industry within the region and beyond.
To support the growth of the aviation industry across Pakistan, Gerry’s dnata has invested over USD 16.5 million across Pakistan during last two years towards cargo warehouses, new airports development, infrastructure projects, and state of the art technological advancements. The partnership with Pakistan Customs, IATA and FBR will definitely enhance the FDI coming into Pakistan and we remain committed to Pakistan Market.
My sincere wishes to Pakistan Customs for taking this initiative of technological advancement in aviation and I strongly believe that with this Pakistan’s Ease of doing business Index will increase, I will make sure that these improvements are registered in World Bank’s report for 2016, and we will definitely attract more foreign investment in Pakistan, further catalyzing country’s growth curve during the coming years.
Long Live Pakistan,
