<p>The joint declaration for the Pakistan-GCC Free Trade Agreement was signed by interim Pakistani Commerce Minister Gohar Ejaz and GCC Secretary General Jasem Mohamed Albudaiwi.</p>
<p>According to a joint statement released by both sides, “both parties looked forward to the expeditious signing, ratification, and implementation of the agreement, which will mark a new chapter in our economic relations,” Geo News said.</p>
<p>From September 26 to September 28, the final round was place in the GCC Headquarters in Saudi Arabia’s capital.<br />
This is an important event since the FTA represents a turning point in both sides’ economic cooperation and is the first FTA between the GCC and any nation since 2009, according to Geo News.</p>
<p>The FTA would make sure that Pakistan’s economic connections are comparable with its strong relations with all of the GCC members, according to Ejaz, who spoke at the event.</p>
<p>The agreement will now go through an internal administrative and approval procedure before being signed and coming into effect.</p>
