Yesterday, a group of Chinese business leaders expressed increased confidence in their operations in Pakistan after attending a meeting with Pakistan’s premier Imran Khan. The meeting was aimed at addressing Chinese firms' concerns regarding support and security after recent terrorist attacks.
During the meeting, Khan vowed to chair a monthly self-review meeting to address their concerns, sending a strong signal that the Pakistani government attaches great importance to the presence of Chinese companies.
Zhang Shilu, general manager of Zhengbang Agriculture Pakistan (Pvt) Limited, who attended the meeting, told the Global Times on Tuesday that the meeting was held in response to concerns that have gripped Chinese investors.
"Chinese enterprises encountered some difficulties in doing business in Pakistan and we expressed our expectations to the Pakistani Prime Minister, who showed that Pakistan attaches great importance to the development of Chinese enterprises in Pakistan. It greatly increases the confidence of Chinese enterprises," Zhang said.
Participants also discussed security issues that have been under the spotlight in the wake of recent terrorist attacks targeting Chinese personnel.
