Saifuddin Saihoon, an economic expert told The Kabul Times that these conferences could tackle all trade problems of the two countries, but if were based the trade standards and under exports and imports rules. Such conferences would tackle trade challenges of the two countries.
“Holding trade conferences is one of the regional principles and naturally can tackle many relevant challenges,” said Saihoon.
He said strengthening trade relations instead of consolidating war geography and sending terrorists and that such conferences 
He quoted an English proverb saying “No war in the trade zone” and said the recent bilateral trade conference could institutionalize the principle of joint investment between the two countries people.
According to him, such conferences should be held with two dimensions; fist the government should lead and the second could be run by the civil society and the people to the two countries, as they need political support. But he warned such conferences gives no result out of security posts support.
Government to government and people to people contact, as well as inter-organizational cooperation can play positive role in tackling these requirements.
