Business community urged to explore investment opportunities in Gwadar

ISLAMABAD: Senate Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani has said that Gwadar was emerging as a new port city of Pakistan which was destined to become the hub of industrial and investment activities.

“Therefore, the business community should gear up itself to fully capitalise on the emerging opportunities for business and investment in Gwadar and Balochistan,” he added while talking to a delegation of Islamabad Chamber of Commerce & Industry (ICCI), led by its President Muhammad Ahmed Waheed, on Wednesday.

MNA and former FPCCI vice president Sajida Zulfiqar, ICCI Vice President Saifur Rehman Khan and former senior vice resident Malik Sohail Hussain were also present on the occasion.

Sanjrani said the business community was the backbone of the economy and its problems should be addressed on a priority basis. “The way the local business community has fought back against the impact of Covid-19 is appreciable… it shows its resilience to survive tough conditions.”

Meanwhile, Sajida Zulfiqar briefed the ICCI delegation about the investment potential in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s tourism sector, saying that KP has a huge potential for tourism, but lack of resources was a constraint in promoting tourism infrastructure.

She emphasised that the business community should partner with the provincial government to promote tourism industry, as it could boost local and foreign tourism in the country.

Speaking on the occasion, ICCI President Muhammad Ahmed Waheed said that the government has offered an attractive package to the construction industry due to which the construction activity has picked up momentum.

He said a similar kind of package should be offered to other major industries, especially for investing in industrial zones. “This can start a new phase of rapid industrialization in Pakistan and put it on the path of fast economic growth.”

He suggested that an investment conference on tourism should be organised in KP to unlock the tourism potential of the province.

He urged the government to finalise the free trade agreement (FTA) with Turkey at the earliest in order to remove trade barriers and give a boost to bilateral trade

A ‘European Silk Road’

publication_icon Philipp Heimberger ,  Mario Holzner and Artem Kochnev wiiw Research Report No. 430, August 2018  43 pages including 10 Tables and 17 Figures FREE DOWNLOAD The German version can be found  here . In this study we argue for a ‘Big Push’ in infrastructure investments in greater Europe. We propose the building of a European Silk Road, which connects the industrial centres in the west with the populous, but less developed regions in the east of the continent and thereby is meant to generate more growth and employment in the short term as well as in the medium and long term. After its completion, the European Silk Road would extend overland around 11,000 kilometres on a northern route from Lisbon to Uralsk on the Russian-Kazakh border and on a southern route from Milan to Volgograd and Baku. Central parts are the route from Lyon to Moscow in the north and from Milan to Constanţa in the south. The southern route would link Central Europe with the Black Sea area and
