ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has proposed a regular interaction and exchanges among investment promotion agencies of the South Asian region to ensure trust building and exploring investment opportunities.

The intra-regional investment will play a pivotal role in the development of the South Asian region, Board of Investment (BoI) Secretary Fareena Mazhar said while participating in a session organised by the World Bank on Tuesday.

The session group under its ‘One South Asia Conversations’ was participated by regional experts on investment and led by Director Regional Integration and Engagement, South Asian region, Cecile Furman.

The discussion explored the ways intra-regional investments can boost robust recovery, what are the barriers, and how a few South Asian pioneer investors are overcoming it all to build successful intra-regional businesses.
