Pakistani sellers can now create their IDs on the e-commerce platform to sell their products worldwide.
Last year, Dawood announced that Pakistan is in the process of registering the country’s goods sellers with US e-commerce giant Amazon and has sent a list of 38 exporters for registration and finally it is happening.
He had mentioned that the initial list of 38 exporters would comprise surgical and sports goods, and home textile sectors and the list will be expanded to other sectors in the near future, after a successful trial of the shortlisted companies.
Prime Minister Imran Khan’s aide Shahbaz Gill also took to Twitter to celebrate this groundbreaking milestone for Pakistan.
“Thank you Imran Khan,” said Gill.
