Pakistan clothesmakers eye India trade pact

Trade restrictions with India are being loosened as country celebrates 65 years of independence.

    Pakistan is marking its 65th year since independence from colonial ruler Britain.

    With a struggling economy, tense geo-political relationships and rising extremism, however, things have been less than positive for the country in recent years.

    The country is now turning to its neighbour, and historical rival, India to try and mend old wounds and loosen trade restrictions in a bid to give its economy a boost.

    One industry that could benefit tremendously is Pakistan's large textile and fashion sector.
