It is time that the Business People and Business Association should take the lead to turn these dream of free trade between these friendly countries into a reality. Economics Data estimate for Pakistan, Turkey, Iran and Central Asia Countries are very positive for the free trade agreement between them.

A Free Trade Area only needs the will, courage and wisdom of business people of Pakistan,Turkey, Iran and Central Asia Countries to make it happen. It is also the key for financial freedom from World Bank and IMF.

Pakistan and Turkey can start the Karachi to Istanbul free trade area in the first and than other countries can join the block one by one, is the easy and best way due to close and very friendly relationship between Pakistan and Turkey. Once the free trade agreement is signed between Pakistan and Turkey other countires will fellow, same thing happen in EU like France and Germany, also Canada and USA in NAFTA.

Pakistan is rich in resources, we have our food to feed our people and lot of Hydro, Gas and coal energy. People of Pakistan are one of the most intelligent and brave peoples of the world with the best pool of educated people like Doctors, Engineers, Economists, Scientist, Programmers, Planners, Accountants, MBA, Managers, Businesspersons and with best Technology Minds. But people of Pakistan is very dis-organized to use these resources, due to corruption and red tape.

Thanks to Overseas Pakistanis whose over $10 billions per year contribution of Foreign Exchange and the hard working business people, farmers and low wages labours of Pakistan making this Pakistan function as a country.
