The second day of a three-day roadshow for investment organized by the Special Investment Facilitation Council (SIFC) has attracted a large number of investors from the UAE and other countries, reported the 24NewsHD TV channel on Monday.
The SIFC is hosting the 'Pakistan Investment Roadshow' from 5-7 November in collaboration with the United States Agency for International Development in the United Arab Emirates as part of its efforts to attract foreign investors for establishing businesses in Pakistan.
According to the report, the Pakistan Investment Roadshow has provided awareness to the visitors about the valuable resources and investment opportunities available in Pakistan and attracts investors in diverse sectors, including minerals, information technology, agriculture and energy.
Using the platform, 30 Pakistani firms presented their project proposals/growth strategies during pitch sessions (B2B) covering various sectors including agriculture, IT and energy.
The event included a panel discussion on Pakistan's investment landscape vis-à-vis emerging markets and how to take advantage of the opportunities ahead, which included government and private sector experts.
The SIFC is working to create a conducive environment to bring foreign investment into the country.
“The roadshow also highlighted the SIFC's efforts to improve investment climate in Pakistan,” the report added.
On the second day of the show, SIFC director general briefed the investors about the investment opportunities in Pakistan.
The SIFC was established by the previous coalition government to act as a ‘one window' for multi-domain cooperation in relevant fields, with a focus on Gulf countries in particular and other countries in general, to facilitate investment and develop an enabling policy environment.
With Pakistan facing a severe economic crisis, the SIFC was established to act as a ‘single window' for multi-domain cooperation in relevant fields, with a focus on GCC countries in particular and other countries in general, to facilitate investment and develop an enabling policy environment.
