    One piece of good news coming out of PR that they are expanding the aged infrastructure. If Pakistan is to enjoy the benefits of trade transit through its territory, then we need more rail tracks so that goods can move via the railways as its much cheaper then road transport. Main port have to be linked as well for the faster freight traffic. This will also reduce damage to road networks.
