ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday welcomed Al-Tamimi Group of Companies’ investment interest in food processing, dairy & livestock, and meat processing sectors of Pakistan.
Talking to the chairman of the Saudi Arabian company, the PM emphasized on the reforms undertaken by the government to ensure ease of doing business and providing a one-window operation to potential investors in the country.
PM Imran said Pakistan was blessed with 12 climatic zones, which were suitable for a variety of agricultural, fruit, dairy, and fisheries production.
He stated that the government was also focusing on research & development to enhance productivity and to increase exports with the help of private investors.
“The government is working on establishing an export-oriented standardisation of indigenous fruits, including apple, peach, mango and citrus, to meet the international demands as these fruits are widely acclaimed for their quality and taste,” the PM said.
Speaking on the occasion, the Al Tamimi Group chairman highly appreciated the measures taken by the government towards achieving economic stability and growth.
He said that economic stability was a major factor in attracting foreign investments and that international businesses were now confident in investing in Pakistan due to transparency and facilities being provided to businessmen.
“International organisations like the World Bank have also rated Pakistan among the world’s top 10 countries set to improve its business climate,” Tamimi noted. “Pakistan is my second home.”
