Qatari government evinced interest in making investments

ISLAMABAD: Qatari government on Monday evinced interest in making investments in various projects, including those under the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) framework.

Qatar Investment Authority’s Head Sheikh Faisal Bin Thani Al-Thani said Qatar is planning various projects in Pakistan with an investment horizon for next 10 to 15 years. “We are looking for a long-term partnership and not quick wins,” an official statement quoted him as saying. He was leading an investment delegation during a meeting with Advisor to Prime Minister on Commerce Abdul Razak Dawood and Chairman Board of Investment Haroon Sharif. The delegation showed a keen interest in Prime Minister’s Housing project as well as supplementing the CPEC investments. Specific projects were discussed in areas of aviation services, tourism, infrastructure development, power generation, water management, agro-industries and tourism across the country.

Dawood encouraged Qatari companies to come forward and have joint ventures with foreign and local companies to become part of global value chain. PM Advisor further said Qatari companies have immense potential to supplement the CPEC projects and stimulate industrialisation in the country.

Advisor informed the delegation that Qatar could enjoy a first mover’s advantage with investment in the tourism sector. “As a result of renewed confidence in the new government, large investments are in the pipeline from other countries including China, Malaysia and Turkey,” he said. Qatar-Pakistan bilateral trade volume is set to witness a major boost in the coming days as Hamad Port has established direct shipping links to Karachi and other ports in the country. The bilateral economic relations are expected to expand further as private companies from both the sides are exploring trade and investment opportunities. Dawood said Pakistan desires to have a long-term economic and strategic relationship between the two countries.

Qatari companies have signed a number of agreements with their Pakistani counterparts to import goods from Pakistan including fruits, vegetables, fresh meat, chicken other poultry and dairy products, after recent visit of a Pakistani mission to Doha. Prime Minister Imran Khan led a delegation to Qatar and met with the Emir of Qatar in January. Following the Prime Minister’s visit, Board of Investment organised a successful Pakistan-Qatar Investment Forum in March in Doha between the business communities of the both countries in collaboration with the government of Qatar.

The Rise of China-Europe Railways

The Rise of China-Europe RailwaysMarch 6, 2018The Dawn of a New Commercial Era?For over two millennia, technology and politics have shaped trade across the Eurasian supercontinent. The compass and domesticated camels helped the “silk routes” emerge between 200 and 400 CE, and peaceful interactions between the Han and Hellenic empires allowed overland trade to flourish. A major shift occurred in the late fifteenth century, when the invention of large ocean-going vessels and new navigation methods made maritime trade more competitive. Mercantilism and competition among Europe’s colonial powers helped pull commerce to the coastlines. Since then, commerce between Asia and Europe has traveled primarily by sea.1Against this historical backdrop, new railway services between China and Europe have emerged rapidly. Just 10 years ago, regular direct freight services from China to Europe did not exist.2 Today, they connect roughly 35 Chinese…
