IS­LAM­ABAD: Pak­istan and Qatar en­joy good eco­nomic and trade re­la­tions which are im­prov­ing fast with the grow­ing un­der­stand­ing be­tween the lead­er­ship and peo­ple of the two coun­tries we are im­prov­ing to­gether, with the pri­vate sec­tors and the govern­ments’ on­board. Qatar shares warm and cor­dial re­la­tions with Pak­istan as well as ex­cel­lent brotherly ties. On mat­ters per­tain­ing to re­gional and global af­fairs both Coun­tries have al­ways been on the same page. Qatar places con­sid­er­able im­por­tance on its re­la­tion with Pak­istan which is based on strong foun­da­tions of com­mon faith and cul­ture. How­ever there is a need to strengthen these re­la­tions through en­hanced bi­lat­eral eco­nomic co­op­er­a­tion and boost in­ter­ac­tion be­tween the pri­vate sec­tors of both coun­tries this is stated by Saqr Al-Man­souri am­bas­sador of Qatar with meet­ing Rasheed Ah­mad Chugh­tai pres­i­dent of IUC res­i­dent ed­i­tor daily Mes­sen­ger.

“Trade Vol­ume has mul­ti­plied be­tween Pak­istan and Qatar as a re­sult of the LNG sup­ply agree­ment. Ma­jor items of ex­port from Pak­istan to Qatar in­clude rice, leather, tex­tile, rags, cot­ton yarn, wo­ven fab­ric, meat etc. Con­versely ma­jor items of im­port from Qatar are petroleum, plas­tic, or­ganic chem­i­cals, and iron etc.The five main mu­tual sec­tors of in­vest­ment are bank­ing, in­sur­ance and ser­vices sec­tor which in­clude tourism, IT, telecom­mu­ni­ca­tion, oil and gas. Pak­istan's in­vest­ment in Qatar is mainly in real es­tate, con­struc­tion ma­chin­ery and tech­ni­cal ser­vices in­dus­try.” he said,

Pak­istani Busi­ness men and pro­fes­sion­als are play­ing a ma­jor role in bank­ing, med­i­cal and con­struc­tion sec­tors of Qatar. Re­cently an agree­ment has been reached to in­crease the Num­ber of Pak­istani blue col­lar work­ers in Qatar to 100,000. He fur­ther ex­plained The Govern­ment of Qatar and Pak­istan en­joy an ex­cep­tion­ally cor­dial re­la­tion and in­tend to widen co­op­er­a­tion in eco­nomic, de­fence and po­lit­i­cal sec­tors to en­sure mu­tual growth and ben­e­fit. Pak­istan pos­sesses vast re­sources and an in­cred­i­ble in­vest­ment po­ten­tial. Qatari busi­ness groups/com­pa­nies should par­take in the pri­va­ti­za­tion process of Pak­istan as well as fo­cus on in­vest­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties in the fields of live­stock and dairy. Govern­ments of both coun­tries are de­ter­mined to pro­mote bi­lat­eral re­la­tions on a broader front. he noted that Qatar's strat­egy for in­ter­na­tional co­op­er­a­tion came in re­sponse to the Qatar Na­tional Vi­sion 2030, and in keep­ing with the coun­try's com­mit­ment to the 2030 Sus­tain­able De­vel­op­ment Goals. She added that the Qatari strat­egy fo­cused in par­tic­u­lar on re­al­iz­ing Goal 17 of the Sus­tain­able De­vel­op­ment Goals, which was ded­i­cated to pur­su­ing In­ter­na­tional Part­ner­ships for De­vel­op­ment to end poverty and pro­vid­ing em­ploy­ment, Ed­u­ca­tion, health­care as­sis­tance for the least de­vel­oped coun­tries.
