Pakistan’s Ministry of Commerce has reportedly got approval from Amazon to Register Pakistan in the verified Amazon seller list. Adviser to Prime Minister of Pakistan for Commerce and Investment Abdul Razak Dawood has confirmed that “Amazon will be adding Pakistan to its Sellers’ List within a few days. We have been engaged with Amazon since last year and now it’s happening. It is a great opportunity for our youth, SMEs, and women entrepreneurs.”
“We have finally made it,” Razak Dawood said.
Reportedly, new updated countries list will be published on Amazon official website in next 12-24 hours.
Enablers CEO Saqib Azhar in a Facebook post said, “I have just received a call from Pakistan Consulate General Los Angeles to confirm Amazon is adding Pakistan in Approved countries list this month insHAllah and it is in the last stages.”
He said, “Previously it was confirmed that Pakistan will be in approved countries of Amazon by end of April 2021 but it has been delayed a few more days and hoping this is now happening certainly this month. Pakistan Consulate General Los Angeles has pushed them to do this before EID so it can be given as a gift to the whole Pakistan. Let’s stand by for the big celebration.”
