Economic experts in Washington are suggesting that to build long term relations between India and Pakistan, there needs to be trade agreements in sectors that can benefit both countries mutually and without federal bureaucracy. One of such sectors is IT or information technology where the private sector can play a major role. Arvind Subramanian and Mohsin Khan from Peterson institute and Sunil Khilnani of Johns Hopkins, economic experts from top notch think tanks in Washington say that if done right India can help Pakistan earn more than 2 billion dollars a year just on executing international IT contracts. But Mohsin Khan is suggesting to concentrate on sectors which are already under negotiations like agriculture and surgical goods but no such progress has been made yet. In this story we also talk to a Pakistani American bussines man who's working with an Indian American partner for the last 20 years. They say that if the two governments can work together then they could expand their business in India and in Pakistan to benefit the peoples of both countries.
