Both Pakistan and Russian businessmen could enter into joint ventures to benefit each other in their respective businesses and could take to level of bilateral trade to new heights with a little sector specific effort.

Russia has a lot to offer to the Pakistani business community, while Pakistani businessmen could learn a lot from Russians for the technological upgrade of their industrial units.

Pakistan could export textile, garments, rice, leather, sports goods, surgical equipments and pharmaceutical to the Russian market while Russia can enhance export of power equipment, steel, urea, chemicals etc to Pakistan.

The oil and gas sector in Pakistan offers great opportunities to Russia, which has the requisite experience and technology in this field.
