Lead­ing Asia-pa­cific

Enterprise - - Editor’s Desk - Faizan Lakhani Is­lam­abad

The Asia-Pa­cific re­gion is strate­giz­ing it­self as a hub of in­no­va­tion, busi­ness acu­men and a vi­able force in driv­ing global growth. It has been in­ter­est­ing to find through En­ter­prise’s story on Asia Pa­cific Busi­ness Fo­rum 2011, that the re­gion is achiev­ing its tar­gets in best in­te­grated man­ner. A plat­form like APBF pro­vides con­ducive op­por­tu­ni­ties for pro-busi­ness ne­go­ti­a­tions and a col­lec­tive out­look on the re­gional trade and in­vest­ment chal­lenges. The prom­i­nent par­tic­i­pa­tion of Trade De­vel­op­ment Au­thor­ity of Pak­istan, Fed­er­a­tion of Pak­istan Cham­bers of Com­merce and In­dus­try and Pak­istan’s rep­re­sen­ta­tives from SAARC and Women Cham­bers of Com­merce and In­dus­try is in­dica­tive of the strength of Pak­istan as a con­tin­u­ously emerg­ing cen­tre of trade and in­vest­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties. The key fac­tors of re­gional in­te­gra­tion, eco­nomic cri­sis, pri­vate sec­tor and SMEs de­vel­op­ment, and cham­pi­oning free trade agree­ments ad­dressed at the con­fer­ence in­di­cate the clear roadmap on which the trade bod­ies of Pak­istan are pro­gress­ing in in­te­gra­tion with the re­gional eco­nomic forces
