Shahbaz Gill, the Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Political Affairs (SAPM), announced that Amazon, the world’s largest e-commerce company, has added Pakistan to its authorized seller list.
Prime Minister Imran Khan’s aide credited the PTI government for the progress, saying, “What could not be accomplished during the last ten years in the history of Pakistan, has finally been done by the present government.”
According to Gill, Pakistan has now entered the global market, which will bring billions of dollars in investment and job opportunities to the region.
“Imran Khan, thank you.”
Pakistan has finally been added to Amazon’s list of registered selling countries. While the process will take 12–24 hours to complete, it will be up and running. Accounts can be opened with Pakistani information.
Aisha Moriani (Joint Secretary, Ministry of Commerce), Omer Gajial (Ex Amazon Category Development Head for Amazon’s North America division), and Shoaib Sarwar (deputy Consul General, Consulate General Pakistan, Los Angeles), as well as the NECC (National Ecommerce Council) team and Badar Khushnood from Amazon, deserve a standing ovation for their efforts.
Former Amazon executive Omar Gajial explained to the participants what resources will be available to Pakistani businesses to sell their goods on Amazon and how they can get the most out of this opportunity once Amazon opens its Seller Registration for Pakistan.
They’ve been working around the clock to get Pakistan added to Amazon’s authorised sellers list, and it’s paid off!
