China has agreed to accommodate Pakistan's demands in the amended Free Trade Agreement to be signed next month.

 The Chinese side conveyed the willingness during the ninth round of negotiations on FTA in Beijing. 

During talks, Pakistani delegation led by Secretary Commerce Mohammad Younus Dagha presented the demands of Pakistani exporters and industrialists for being accommodated in the final draft of Free Trade Agreement.

The demands included providing tariff concessions equivalent to the ASEAN countries. 

The Chinese side also agreed on Electronic Data Exchange, which will help reducing chances of under invoicing.
