President Dr Arif Alvi invited companies of Switzerland to avail the investment opportunities available in the energy sector of Pakistan. He said that these opportunities can be extremely lucrative for the investors. He said this while talking to the President of the Council of States of Swiss Confederation Jean Rene Fournier, who called on him at the Awan-e-Sadr.
The president emphasized that Pakistan valued its long-term partnership with Switzerland in economic, trade and commercial fields. He further said that the trade between the two countries had been increasing steadily, though was not yet commensurate with the true potential.
Appreciating the Swiss investment in Pakistan, he underscored that the government’s business friendly policies were bearing fruit as Pakistan had gained 28 places in the “ease of doing business” index this year.
Jean Rene Fournier said Switzerland was a staunch supporter of human rights and would offer its good offices for the resolution of Kashmir dispute, if both parties agreed.
