ISLAMABAD - German Ambassador to Pakistan, Martin Kobler, on Friday said that his country's business giants have expressed willingness to invest in different fields, including Information Technology and auto manufacturing, in Pakistan.
"German giants like Volkswagen and Siemens have shown desire to invest in Pakistan," the envoy said during a meeting with Special Assistant to Prime Minister (SAPM) on Overseas Pakistanis and Human Resource Development, Zulfikar Abbas Bukhari.
Both officials also discussed matters of bilateral interest with a special focus on importing manpower from Pakistan by creating job opportunities in Germany.
They also discussed the impact of Brexit and the dynamics of the labour market in Germany in the post-Brexit scenario.
The Ambassador said there was an emerging need of mechatronics experts in German industries, which would eventually prompt need for mechatronics experts from across the globe.
"German legislatures will pass laws for immigrant workers in March next year for the purpose," it added.
Bukhari assured the ambassador of providing maximum technical workforce required by Germany on priority.
