GWADAR: The Balochis­tan Board of Investment and Trade (BBIT) has called for formulating a policy in the context of a new border crossing point set up between Pakistan and Iran to promote investment in the border area.

A meeting of the audit committee of the BBIT’s board of directors was held in Gwadar with Mir Naveed Kalmati, former caretaker provincial minister and president of Gwadar Economic, in chair.

The meeting approved the last year’s audited accounts approved by the SECP auditors.

The meeting demanded a policy in the context of a new Pakistan-Iran border crossing point established to promote investment in the border area.

In view of the importance of Gwadar Free Zone and Gwadar Port, it was emphasised that a BBIT’s office should be set up in Gwadar to facilitate the investors who want to invest in Gwadar and the free zone.
