* Pakistani PM invites Sri Lankan businessmen to invest in 'emerging Pakistan'
Sat, Jan 13, 2018, 01:28 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jan 13, Colombo: Pakistan's Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has invited Sri Lankan businessmen to invest in trade with the "emerging Pakistan" and see for themselves what Pakistan can offer for investors.

The Pakistani Premier has said that "Pakistan is a vibrant democracy with a vibrant press and its foreign investment policies are liberal, apolitical, non-partisan and consistent," Dawn reported.

Mr Abbasi has made these comments in a video message on the opening day of the Third Pakistan Single-Country Exhibition in Colombo on Friday.

Prime Minister Abbasi has said that that Pakistan is a robust economy holding much promise for international investors and is hardly like the way it was projected in the Western media as a place replete with terrorism and violence.

He has said that the Pakistan economy registered a growth rate of five per cent and was aiming 7 percent target with a higher foreign investment.

"There is not a single case of a foreign investment in Pakistan which has not made money," Abbasi has said, adding that Pakistan had the highest consumer growth rate in the world at 8.3 percent. He has further said that Pakistan had won the 'war against terror' with courage and sacrifice.
