As the major sanctions have been lifted, the Iran – Pakistan gas pipeline project could augment the economic cooperation in the region. Pakistan considering its increasing oil and gas demand, needs to exploit the opportunity to enable continues supply of gas to its consumers and meet the increasing energy demands of the country. Iran’s financial and commercial sector’s isolation is another opportunity for Pakistan. Collaboration and cooperation among the financial sectors of the two countries will enable rapid growth in the trade and economic activities between the two countries. Based on the recent developments, there exists a twofold opportunity for both Pakistan and Iran to enhance and strengthen their energy and financial sectors, respectively, through mutual cooperation and economic ties.
