The ECC’s decision would now be placed before the Federal Cabinet for approval, after which it will be notified.

The ECC’s approval to import Cotton and Cotton Yarn from India is another step paving the way for normalizing the tense bilateral relations between the two arch-rivals.

It followed military-to-military level talks in which the two sides agreed to adhere to the 2003 ceasefire agreement and an exchange of mutual desire of Prime Minister Imran Khan and his Indian Counterpart Narendra Modi for establishing peace in the region.

The adviser further told that the ECC also approved the formation of a National Export Development Board (NEDB).

The NEDB will be chaired by Prime Minister Imran Khan and will also include ministers, exporters, investors, and the business community.

“The NEDB hence becomes the main forum to discuss the strategy, incentives, and removal of business hurdles,” Abdul Razak Dawood said.
