With improving security, UK looking to invest in Pakistan’s futureadmin
As a friend of Pakistan, I used my time here to encourage policymakers to prioritize efforts to create the conditions where businesses can thrive and to attract foreign direct investment. This is important for the UK and Pakistan to increase bilateral trade and create jobs together.
With the right conditions in place to allow foreign companies to flourish here, I strongly believe that we will see more UK-based companies exploring the wealth of opportunities in Pakistan. These are the same conditions required for Pakistan’s own business and manufacturing sectors to flourish and which will allow the economy to grow in order to meet the challenges of tomorrow.
