Pro­mot­ing in­vest­ment in Pak­istan

Enterprise - - INVESTMENT -

The am­bas­sador of Nor­way to Pak­istan, Robert Kvile, has said that his coun­try plans to hold an in­ter­na­tional con­fer­ence in Oslo re­gard­ing busi­ness op­por­tu­ni­ties in Pak­istan that will help boost trade and at­tract new in­vest­ments. He said that the world needs to know about the great busi­ness op­por­tu­ni­ties that Pak­istan of­fers.

The con­fer­ence will help for­eign in­vestors to iden­tify busi­ness pos­si­bil­i­ties in Pak­istan, ac­cord­ing to a state­ment is­sued by FPCCI.

Talk­ing to Hu­mayun Say­eed, Chair­man FPCCI Stand­ing Com­mit­tee on Trade Del­e­ga­tions, the Nor­we­gian Am­bas­sador said that a del­e­ga­tion from his coun­try re­cently vis­ited Pak­istan and de­cided to en­hance in­vest­ments as well as im­ports.

Kvile said that Bama-Grup­pen AS, Nor­way’s largest dis­trib­u­tor of fruit and veg­etable which is also the largest player in Europe has de­cided to en­hance im­ports from Pak­istan with fo­cus on man­goes. He said that Pak­istan’s fur­ni­ture in­dus­try is spec­tac­u­lar but they need to ex­am­ine the taste and de­mand pat­terns of Euro­pean coun­tries. Nor­we­gian de­sign­ers can help Pak­istan boost ex­ports.

The am­bas­sador said that bi­lat­eral trade can be en­hanced through planned vis­its of busi­ness­men adding that Pak­istan is a very im­por­tant coun­try and Nor­way is help­ing it in sec­tors like ed­u­ca­tion, health, NGOs as well as preser­va­tion of lo­cal cul­ture. He agreed to the as­ser­tion of Hu­mayun Say­eed, that the gov­ern­ment should leave busi­ness to the busi­ness com­mu­nity and avoid un­nec­es­sary in­ter­fer­ence. FPCCI has also de­manded that ef­forts should be made aimed at sin­gle coun­try ex­hi­bi­tions and es­tab­lish­ment of Nor­we­gian-funded skill de­vel­op­ment fa­cil­i­ties in all the ma­jor cities
