GWADAR: Prime Minister Imran Khan stopped by a stall  during "Gwadar Expo 2019" when a female entrepreneur  drew his attention by calling  him  "Imran Bhai", an endearment used  for calling one's elder brother.

Accompanied by Chief of the Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa, Balochistan Chief Minister Jam Kamal Khan and other senior officials, the prime minister not only did visit the stall but also offered   government assistance  to the entrepreneur .

A video from the Expo2019, shows the woman briefing  the premier that she has visited China  where  "we are doing Balochi embroidery  on their shirts and  dresses". 

"It is  an highly exportable item," the woman tells Prime Minister Imran Khan.

The prime minister applauds  the entrepreneur and asked whether she  needs government's help . The entrepreneur also hands over her card to the prime minister before he leaves the stall. 

The Gwadar Expo was held on March 28-29.
