According to a Gilani Research Foundation Survey carried out by Gallup Pakistan, majority of Pakistanis (63%) are in favor of establishing trade ties with India.
A nationally representative sample of men and women from across the four provinces was asked “In your opinion should Pakistan trade with India or not”? Responding to this, 63% said Yes and 33% said No. 4% did not respond. The same question was asked earlier in June 2012, and once again most respondents answered in favor of establishing close trade ties with India (67%).
