DAVOS, Switzerland: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Wednesday said that his government was pursuing a comprehensive reforms agenda, besides successfully delivering on the major challenges of terrorism, economy and power shortages.
In a meeting with the Group Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of VimpelCom Jean Charlie in Davos on the sidelines of the 47th World Economic Forum’s (WEF) annual meeting, the prime minister said that his government had achieved economic stability and turned around the country’s economy in a short span of three years.
The group CEO of VimpelCom said that he was seeking public private partnership for working with the government on education and skills development programmes.
Jean Charlie said that his company was planning to launch new products in Pakistan as the country had come to the forefront as the largest emerging market.
Jean Charlie lauded the investment environment in Pakistan and said it was very attractive for foreign investors.
Later talking to the Pakistan’s state-run news agency, Jean Charlie said he was very excited about the future of Pakistan that had undergone a major transformation in the past few years.
The group CEO of VimpelCom said the expansion of services would also be beneficial for Pakistan. He termed the government policies as best and said his company would use Pakistan as the hub to support its global telecom business.
