Experts at a roundtable discussion on 'India-Pakistan Trade: Post-conflict Scenario' organized by SDPI in Islamabad, says that the improved ties will help increase economic growth and reduce poverty in the region. Experts are of the view that trade between the two countries is going on through informal channels, and stress the need to formalize it.
