Wednesday, April 03, 2013 - Gilgit—Pakistan and China have resumed trade and traffic on the

Karakoram Highway, through the Khunjerab Pass. The two countries had earlier this year agreed

to open the border on 1st April, instead of 1st May, as was the past practice.

A bus carrying passengers from China reached the Pakistan Customs House located in the border

town of Sust on Monday. The importance of the trade through the Karakoram Highway has increased

significantly due to the powerful presence of Chinese business companies in Gwadar.
