DUBAI: Sindh Governor Muhammad Zubair has stressed on Pakistan and India to initiate the dialogue process for improvement of regional peace and development. He emphasised that India should be a part of the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) for the economic revolution in the region.

He was addressing a seminar titled: ‘Investment Opportunities in New Emerging Markets’ at a local hotel in Dubai. The event was organised by the Pakistan Business Council, Dubai.

He expressed the hope that CPEC is a gamechanger not only for Pakistan but for the entire region. He regretted that Pakistan has four neighbours but unfortunately did not have good relations with three of them. He acknowledged that good relations with the neighbouring countries are a backbone for the improvement of the economy of Pakistan and prosperity of the region.

In reply to a question by The News, Muhammad Zubair suggested that Pakistan should start peace dialogue with India after the elections. He believed that Pakistan is destined to become the fastest growing economy in the next 10 years after a massive improvement in the law and order and power supply situation in the country.

The governor said in 2013 Pakistan’s security situation was so bad that no foreigner was willing to come to Pakistan even on a one day trip, besides Pakistan was facing energy crisis. “Fixing these two areas was a huge and a daunting task, which the government took head on and after four-and-a-half years and now we can proudly say that both the challenges have been met successfully,” he said.

In reply to a question about the PSL final in Karachi, the governor said Karachi is very excited and ready to host the final of the 3rd edition of the Pakistan Super League. He said Karachi was in hot waters before 2013 for almost two decades. Now at the end of the present government’s tenure, it is again becoming socially and culturally active city, which it was during the '60s and '70s, he added. Many businessmen and officials from various foreign consulates and embassies were present at the event.
