On Thursday, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif stated that Pakistan and Qatar have a clear vision of the future, with new opportunities and increased awareness to improve bilateral relations, particularly on the economic front.
“I’m returning to Pakistan today after completing an important trip to Qatar.” “Thank you to the government and people of Qatar, particularly my brother HH Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, for the warm welcome and excellent hospitality,” the Prime Minister said in a tweet.
In another tweet, the premier mentioned two “notable” aspects of his visit, saying that “Pakistan and Qatar have a clear vision of the future, which offered new opportunities and avenues in a rapidly changing world.”
He went on to say that “there is a greater awareness among the two countries of the need to upgrade bilateral relations by making economic cooperation the focal point of bilateral ties.”
During his visit, the Prime Minister assured Qatari investors of the government’s full support in expanding their presence in Pakistan, and urged them to take advantage of the opportunities presented by the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).
At the ‘Pakistan-Qatar Trade and Investment Roundtable 2022,’ he met with prominent Qatari and Pakistani business leaders, including Finance Minister Ali bin Ahmed Al Kuwari, CEO, Qatar Financial Canter Yousaf Al Khater Jaida, and others.
PM Shehbaz invited Qatari investors to invest in Pakistan’s energy, aviation, agriculture, livestock, maritime, tourism, and hospitality sectors at the QIA, one of the world’s largest sovereign wealth funds.
