  1. Pakistan exemplary good relations with KSA are beyond any doubt. However, relating that Pakistan is a heaven for foreigners and local investors is simply exaggerating the bitter truth that as far ease of doing business is concerned, among say 200 countries of the world Pakistan stand in the bottom line. Therefore a lot to be done through good governance, one window operation to change this perception.
