Shahbaz woos Muslim countries investors in London

Punjab Chief Minister Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif has said that Government of Pakistan is making sincere efforts for overcoming two big problems including terrorism and loadshedding being confronted by the country.

He was addressing a meeting held regarding investment in Pakistan under World Islamic Economic Forum in London on Thursday. Investors of important Muslim countries from all over the world attended the meeting. Federal Finance Minister Ishaq Dar, Vice Chairman Punjab Investment Board, Syed Maratab Ali and Provincial Secretary Energy Usman Akhtar Bajwa also addressed the meeting on behalf of Pakistan.

Shahbaz Sharif said that prospects of profit for foreign investors are more than their expectations in Pakistan. He said that all possible security would be provided to the investors. He said that terrorism is not such a problem which cannot be solved. The Chief Minister said that Indonesia, Turkey and Sri Lanka have efficiently overcome this problem and we have learnt a lot from these countries in this regard.

He appealed the investors of Muslim countries to invest in energy, IT, telecommunication and infrastructure sectors in Pakistan. Shahbaz Sharif said that in the past, local and foreign investors had not confidence in the political and administrative machinery of Pakistan but PML-N government after coming into power has set high standards of transparency.

He said that even our worst opponents cannot attribute any scandal to our government. The Chief Minister said that we are giving special incentives to those investing in energy sector. He said that Almighty Allah has blessed us with natural sunshine that is why we have decided to give priority to solar energy.

Federal Finance Minister Ishaq Dar, addressing on the occasion, said that present government is again implementing those electricity projects including Neelam Jhelum and Nandipur which were neglected by the previous government due to ‘greed’.
