Karachi: The solution to many of the challenges being confronted by Pakistan lies in the economic development.

This was stated by Governor Sindh, Dr Ishratul Ebad Khan while talking to the UK High Commissioner in Pakistan, Adam Thomson, who called on him at the Governor House here the other day. The British Deputy High Commissioner in Karachi, Franscis Campbell, was also present on the occasion.

The governor was of the view that foreign investment would not only help enhance the confidence of the Pakistanis but would also provide opportunities that would be conducive for the profitable businesses. He also referred to his recent visit to Britain and described it quite fruitful. Ebad opined that the targets that were fixed for that very visit have been achieved and for that he was thankful to the UK government, the high commissioner and the deputy high commissioner.

He said that the British government and the investors “understood our case in a better way and expressed confidence for the investment in the province which augurs well”. The governor was of the view that the UK prime minister endorsed “our viewpoint” and that the government members adopted a positive approach.

He said that the interest that was exhibited in the meetings made it almost certain the British investment would be headed towards the province especially the city of Karachi. Ebad said that solid waste management, desalination, higher education and infrastructure were the sectors where collaboration was moving ahead. The UK diplomat assured that he would play his role towards promotion of investment in Pakistan. He said that acceptance of Pakistan as an emerging market would open big avenue for investment and that follow-up meetings were going on.
