integration techniques. In the current study results show that Pakistan first
began trading volume for the US and developed countries, the UK and
Europe. As a combination of export and import time Pakistan has
improved. Production and manufacture of semi-finished goods and
primary product alternatives, while the import of consumer goods, capital
