In his remarks, the ambassador reaffirmed Pakistan’s commitment to economic reform and facilitating international investment. He noted that with its unique geo-strategic location, vast human resources, and a huge untapped growth potential, Pakistan provides attractive incentives and liberal policies for investment in all sectors of the economy for foreign and local investors.
The ambassador highlighted the government of Pakistan’s vision for geo-economics that was anchored in greater intra-regional trade and connectivity.
Ambassador Dr. Asad Majeed reiterated Pakistan’s support for an inclusive political settlement in Afghanistan.

The ambassador stressed that Pakistan attached importance to its longstanding partnership with the United States. He said that Pakistan wanted to forge a relationship with the United States that was broad-based with a robust economic and trade pillar.
Dr. Asad Majeed Khan further identified areas in Pakistan’s economy, particularly its agriculture and technology sector, where the two countries could work together to achieve win-win outcomes.
