Our resolve, sacrifices delivered Pakistan from terror, Haroon tells German envoy


ISLAMABAD: Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Revenue and Federal Minister Senator Haroon Akhtar Khan said that the resolve and sacrifices of the Pakistani nation and its soldiers had won the country peace and security after a long, drawn-out battle against the evil forces of terror.

“We have been through some of the most trying circumstances nations go through but through collective resolve and the determination of our people and countless sacrifices of our forces, we have been able to vanquish the forces of terror,” he said while talking to German Ambassador to Pakistan Martin Kobler.

He said that the economy was becoming stable and investors were coming to Pakistan to benefit from the investment opportunities and the favourable business climate.

He welcomed the German investment in different sectors of Pakistan’s economy and appreciated the efforts of the Germany envoy for his efforts towards the image-building of Pakistan.

Earlier, Martin Kobler briefed Senator Haroon Akhtar Khan on the scope of German investment in Pakistan, particularly the smaller convenience stores set up across Pakistan which had flourished quite well by registering double digit growth during the last two years. He said that Pakistan had also moved during the last six months from a “question-mark country” to the group of countries with opportunities in the eyes of potential German investors who were now looking at Pakistan as a potential market that offered good returns on their investment.

He said that “quality control” was a hallmark of German businesses and German investment in Pakistan was also driven by this ideal with a vision of providing quality services and products at affordable prices to the customers.
