He said the United States is Pakistan’s largest export market and American companies have been leading investors in Pakistan for the past 20 years. In the past year alone, U.S. investment in Pakistan increased by over 50 per cent, reaching its highest level in over a decade.

The Consul General also planted a tree at the Sargodha Botanical Garden and applauded the domestic initiatives Pakistan is pursuing – the Clean Green Pakistan Movement.
