ISLAMABAD: Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Revenue, Federal Minister and Senator, Haroon Akhtar Khan has said the resolve and sacrifices of the Pakistani nation and its jawans have won the country peace and security after a long, drawn-out battle against the evil forces of terror.
“We have been through some of the most trying circumstances nations go through but with the help of collective resolve and determination of our people and through countless sacrifices of our forces, we have been able to vanquish the forces of terror,” he said while talking to Germany’s Ambassador to Pakistan, Martin Kobler.
He said the peace and security prevailing in the country has already paid dividends with the economy stabilising and investors coming to Pakistan in a big way to benefit from investment opportunities and the favourable business climate.
He welcomed German investment in different sectors of Pakistan’s economy and appreciated the efforts of the Germany envoy for his efforts towards image-building of Pakistan.
Earlier, Martin Kobler briefed Senator Haroon Akhtar Khan on the scope of German investment in Pakistan, particularly the smaller convenience stores set up across Pakistan which had flourished quite well by registering double digit growth during the last two years.
He said Pakistan had also moved during the last six months from a “question-mark country” status to the “group of opportunities countries” in the eyes of potential German investors who were now looking at Pakistan as a potential market offering good returns on their investment.
He said “quality control” was a hallmark of the German businesses and the German investment in Pakistan was also driven by this ideal with a view to providing the customers quality services and products at affordable prices.
