Talking to Japan’s Ambassador to Pakistan WADA Mitsuhiro, who called on her in Lahore, she said that Punjab had emerged as the largest consumer market. “The skilled manpower of the province is capable of performing exceptionally well in the Japanese companies,” she said, adding, “People-to-people contacts are a must if relations between these two countries are to be further strengthened,” the chief minister said, adding, “Keeping in view their interests, both Punjab and Japan can collaborate with each other in trade and investment.”

Speaking on the occasion, Japan’s envoy said that his country attached great importance to its ties with Pakistan. “We are determined to engage in partnership with the government of Punjab for the spread of technology,” he said.

Mitsuhiro said the government of Japan and the country’s private sector had launched several projects for the people’s welfare in Punjab.
