Pakistan-UAE trade to stay strong

Prominent Pakistani business figures living in the UAE have said trade between their home country and the Gulf state should be unaffected by the assassination of Benazir Bhutto and its possible implications for democracy, reported Emirates Business 24/7. Bilateral trade should reach $5bn this year and the VP of the Pakistan Business Council in the UAE, Dr A Hadi Shahid, said the political crisis 'should not dampen the country's economic development'.
