ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan and his aides have been celebrating Pakistan's entry to Amazon's sellers' list, but it has been reliably learnt that the e-commerce giant has yet to approve the country's registration which is still under process. Prime Minister Imran Khan and certain government officials have tweeted about this, calling it a major boost to the e-commerce sector that would create jobs for youth and women entrepreneurs, especially in the small and medium enterprises (SMEs) sector. Sources told The Correspondent that two officers of the commerce ministry and foreign ministry misled PM's adviser on commerce Razak Dawood on the matter of registration, resulting in an unsubstantiated and hasty announcement from the government. A female senior joint secretary of the commerce ministry and an official of the Foreign Service in their excitement did not wait for the official response from Amazon and bypassed their reporting authorities to break the news as if it's a confirmed event. Sources say that the officials involved in misleading the government should have waited for a confirmation slip from Amazon vis-a-vis registration of Pakistani sellers. Action should be followed on their premature and hasty communication. Officials are concerned that the "anti-Pakistan lobby" in India may create...
