Business Recorder reported that Indian government has agreed to provide three trains per week for carrying cement consignments from Pakistan for its domestic consumption.

As per the report, Pakistan Railways was already deploying three trains every week for cement supply to India, but Pakistani exporters had complaints of short supply of wagons for cement and other exportable items.

India has emerged as a promising market for Pakistan to export its surplus cement. The two sides are working closely to tap this potential. The private sector of both countries is playing a key role in making things happen, which were thought impossible in the past.
