MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: The Afghanistan – Pakistan Transit Trade Agreement (APTTA) was signed in 1965 with the objective of granting and guarantee to both parties the freedom of transit to and from their territories . The routes that were identified included: a) Karachi – Peshawar – Torkhum, b) Karachi – Chaman – Spin Boldak, and c) Port Qasim was included subsequently in 1998. The provision to include additional routes was also incorporated in the agreement. Even after revision of this agreement there is no comprehensive quantitative study on the costs and benefits of this agreement. The paper highlights the importance of indulging in economy-wide research in order not only to assess the impact for Afghanistan and Pakistan, but also for neighboring countries.
