PM Imran’s old friend lands job as special assistant on foreign investment
“The prime minister has been pleased to appoint with effect from October 11, 2018 Sahibzada Amir Jahangir as Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Foreign Investment,” said a notification issued by the Cabinet Division.
Jahangir, who is the brother of Pakistan Sarzameen Party (PSP) leader Fauzia Kasuri, has been appointed under Rule 4(6) of the 1973 Rules of Business which says that there may be a special assistant or special assistants to the prime minister with such status and functions as may be determined by the prime minister.
This is the third high-profile appointment to look after the investment portfolio. Earlier this month, the government appointed Haroon Sharif as chairman of the Board of Investment with the status of minister of state.
Also, Abdul Razak Dawood was given the portfolio of adviser to PM on commerce, industry, and investment.
