These commodities include crude oil, refined petroleum products, liquefied natural gas (LNG), food, and agricultural products, among others. Furthermore, ITFC remains committed to fostering trade development in Pakistan by providing capacity building programs designed for enhancing the capacity of the Ministry of Commerce (MoC) in specific trade related areas.
