Peace and stability have been largely restored across the country, paving way for fresh economic activities, said President Mamnoon Hussain here Thursday.
Talking to the people, following the formal inauguration of the International Trade Fair organised by the Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FPCCI), the president said present-day Pakistan is much more stable as compared to a few years ago.
“Representation from more than 20 countries in today’s event reflects growing confidence of local, as well as foreign, traders and investors,” he remarked.
Emphasising that Pakistan offers best investment opportunities, he urged locals to benefit from the same.
President Mamnoon on the occasion also appreciated the business community of the country for being steadfast in times of difficulties. “You are being provided with series of opportunities through China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC),” said the president, while mentioning that it has opened a vista of prosperity for the entire region.
He also advised the local traders to follow the international rules of business so as to boldly face the fast emerging global challenges.
Felicitating the organisers of the international trade fair, he hoped the event will contribute to further strengthen the national economy.
President Mamnoon accompanied by Sindh Governor Muhammad Zubair, TDAP Chairman S.M.Munir, FPCCI President Tufail Zubair and Convener of the International Trade Fair Muhammad Hanif Gohar took a round of the stalls.
Members of the diplomatic corps and representatives of different business organisations were also present on the occasion.
