Shimla hosts Indo-Pak trade expo in Shimla to boost bilateral ties

"If people from different countries understand each other, it will certainly mend political relations and improve trade relations. It is best to involve the common man and give impetus to trade and commerce. Bilateral relations between both nations can prosper in such an environment," Dhumal said.
