PM invites Turkish businessmen to invest in Pakistan


Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Saturday invited Turkish businessmen to invest in Pakistan and establish strategic collaboration in sectors of energy, agriculture, information technology and construction.
The Chief Executives of select Turkish business Groups called on the prime minister here, during his visit to Turkiye, at the invitation of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
During the meetings, the Prime Minister outlined the government’s vision to facilitate foreign direct investment and encouraged joint ventures. Their exchanges spanned around expanding trade and investment ties to maximize mutual gains from available opportunities in Pakistan and to enhance cooperation in key sectors of the economy through direct presence of Turkish enterprises and via joint ventures with Pakistani counterparts.
It may be recalled that after the signing of the historic Trade in Goods Agreement by the two countries in August last year, which became operational from May 1, 2023, new opportunities for trade of traditional and non-traditional products have emerged between the two countries. Therefore, for the effective utilization of these opportunities, the Prime Minister urged Turkish companies to invest in Pakistan, assuring them of complete facilitation and conducive business environment.
The Prime Minister held separate meetings with leading Turkish companies that have already invested in Pakistan.
