"It is my farewell visit to the La­hore Cham­ber of Com­merce & In­dus­try as af­ter serv­ing for a pe­riod of 12 years in Pak­istan as the Am­bas­sador of Ar­gentina and I will be leav­ing this coun­try where I had some of the most mem­o­rable time and en­joyed match­less hos­pi­tal­ity of the Pak­istani na­tion", the Am­bas­sador said while talk­ing to the LCCI Se­nior Vice Pres­i­dent Al­mas Hy­der and Vice Pres­i­dent Nasir Saeed here at the La­hore Cham­ber of Com­merce & In­dus­try. LCCI Ex­ec­u­tive Com­mit­tee Mem­bers Dr. Qu­rat-ul-Ain, Tan­veer Ahmed, Mian Zahid Javed, Tariq Mah­mood, Zahid Maq­sood Butt and Ab­dul Razaq were also present on the oc­ca­sion.

The Am­bas­sador said that he would con­tinue his ef­forts for bring­ing the two coun­tries closer even af­ter leav­ing Pak­istan as the Am­bas­sador of Ar­gen­tine. He urged the pri­vate sec­tors of the two coun­tries to join hands to strengthen the mu­tual trade and eco­nomic ties. He said that fre­quent ex­change of trade del­e­ga­tions and sin­gle coun­try ex­hi­bi­tions could also help pro­mote trade and eco­nomic ac­tiv­i­ties be­tween the two coun­tries.

He said that Ar­gen­tinean govern­ment has opened all eco­nomic sec­tors to the for­eign in­vestors. He urged the Pak­istani busi­ness­men to ex­plore trade and in­vest­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties in a num­ber of sec­tors of Ar­gentina. He said that busi­ness of the both coun­tries could start joint ven­tures in agri­cul­ture and live­stock sec­tors which have im­mense po­ten­tial. He said that Ar­gentina has ex­per­tise in th­ese sec­tors and Pak­istani busi­ness­men could lean a lot from their Ar­gen­tinean coun­ter­parts.

The LCCI Se­nior Vice Pres­i­dent Al­mas Hy­der ap­pre­ci­ated the ef­forts of out­go­ing Am­bas­sador of Ar­gentina Rodolfo J. Martin Sar­avia to bring the peo­ple of two coun­tries closer. He said that Pak­istan and Ar­gen­tine main­tain good diplo­matic re­la­tions. More­over, by giv­ing MFN sta­tus to each other in 2002, both coun­tries found the ba­sis of fur­ther de­vel­op­ing eco­nomic re­la­tions.
