Another step to further decline the economy of Pakistan and flow of investment to India by the incompetent Government of Pakistan.

The time has come for a huge migration back eastwards, just like the one that took place in 1947. Then pakistan was the promised land. Now that there's nothing left to loot and plunder in here, its about time we turned our attention to the greener pasteurs of Mother India.After all many in pakistan have their roots in India.

I hope that this increased trade and investment opportunities amongst the two sister nations pave the way for a brighter future. A future that is based on regional cooperation instead of raw imprudent belligerence.
