ISLAMABAD: Ambassador at Large and Prime Minister’s Special Envoy Javed Malik has apprised Federal Minister for Commerce Engineer Khurram Dastagir Khan on his trade diplomacy initiatives aimed at expanding business, trade and commerce relations between Pakistan, the UAE and the wider gulf region.
He appreciated the minister’s vision and efforts to take Pakistan’s regional and international trade to a new level, says a press release on Thursday. The envoy briefed him on changing economic dynamics of UAE and Gulf region that have resulted in a growing demand for products and services. This has not only created new opportunities for exports and re-exports but there is tremendous scope to further expand our business, trade and commerce relations with the Gulf states.
Malik appreciated bold initiatives of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to bring the economy back on track, restore law and order and effectively address the energy crises. He also underscored the importance of closer business to business interactions between Pakistani and gulf based businessmen so that newer vistas of cooperation can be identified and utilised.
They also discussed positive role that can be played by overseas Pakistani businessmen in the UAE and the Gulf region who can act as a bridge that brings our nations together. The minister highlighted initiatives being taken by the government to encourage business community and facilitate exporters and traders.
Javed Malik also shared a proposal to initiate meaningful initiatives to actively engage with the UAE and the region and presented a detailed strategy in this regard which was welcomed by the minister. It was agreed to hold a series of events, seminars and conferences that would not only showcase the opportunities in Pakistan but will also produce tangible results in expanding our trade.
