Pakistan’s emerging and untapped market is attracting investment from Singaporean Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), as Pakistan High Commissioner Syed Hassan Javed assured profit sustainability from a steady GDP growth of 5 to 6% in a country that has never experienced recession.

The High Commissioner addressed a Networking Session last Thursday, encouraging entrepreneurs and heads of SMEs to invest in the country, highlighting its young population, hardworking labor force and abundant mineral  and energy resources. Cooperation with the country will be beneficial as it serves as the gateway to the growing Asia Pacific Region and Gulf states.  Javed also promoted Pakistan’s liberal investment policy.

Singapore SMEs showed investment interests in the construction and infrastructure sector, according to Singapore’s Armor Shield Marketing Consultant Michael Lee.

Javed, speaking to gathered press, added, “Pakistan offers unlimited opportunities for companies looking for safe haven for investment”.
