Malaysia to Invest in Pakistan Developmental Projects
PESHAWAR: Malaysian High Commissioner Dato’ Dr Hasrul Sani bin Mujtabar said on Thursday at the ‘Guest Hour’ programme of Peshawar Press Club on Thursday that Malaysia is willing to invest in various sectors in Pakistan, including tourism, power generation and infrastructure development.
Dr Hasrul Sani said that Pakistan, especially its Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, was full of natural resources and his country was interested in various sectors in the province.
The envoy said that several Pakistani items, particularly mango, cloth, rice and sports goods, were very popular in Malaysia and during his recent meetings he discussed such issues with Governor Mahtab Ahmed Khan and Chief Minister Pervez Khattak.
He said that there were at least 8,000 Pakistanis associated with different business activities in Malaysia. He said that every year around 30,000 tourists visited Malaysia and majority of them were from Pakistan.
The envoy said that Malaysia had great opportunities for Pakistanis, particularly for students to take admissions there. He said that over 4,000 Pakistanis were currently getting education in Malaysia because the expenses were nominal compared to other countries.
