Shahbaz Sharif invited a trade and business delegation from Malaysia to Pakistan to discuss enhancing trade and investment relations between the two countries.

The two sides also agreed to have the next meeting of Joint Ministerial Commission in Islamabad soon.

The prime minister reiterated his invitation to his Malaysian Counterpart Anwar Ibrahim to undertake an official visit to Pakistan later this year.
