PM Imran urges Turkish investors to explore Pakistan's untapped areas
Addressing the Turkish businessmen at a business forum organized by the Union of Chambers and Commodity Exchanges of Turkey (TOBB) here, the prime minister said that Pakistan was a virgin territory as a lot of trade areas had not yet been exploited and hardly five percent of total mineral reserves could yet be explored.
TOBB is the highest legal entity in Turkey representing the private sector with 365 member associations from local chambers of commerce and industry.
The prime minister is in Turkey on two-day official visit, at the invitation of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
Prior to landing in Turkish capital, he visited Turkish city of Konya where he visited the tomb of renowned jurists and Islamic scholar Maulana Jalaluddin Rumi and laid a wreath at the grave.
He is accompanied by a high level delegation including Foreign Minister Makhdoom Shah Mahmood Qureshi, Finance Minister Asad Umar, Planning Minister Makhdoom Khusro Bakhtiar, Advisor on Trade Abdul Razak Dawood and Special Assistant to PM Zulfikar Bukhari.
The prime minister said huge reserves of oil, gas, copper, coal were yet unexplored.
He said as Pakistan was undertaking huge connectivity projects under China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), the issue of huge distance impeding Pak-Turkish trade would be resolved.
He said both the countries should start working from now to benefit from the huge opportunities coming out of BRI as it would connect those parts of the world which had been no or less connectivity.
