KARACHI: Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah on Tuesday invited Omani investors to invest in different sectors, such as fisheries, water, construction and food processing.

“The Sindh government is ready to work with them on a public-private partnership basis,” he told a 15-member delegation of the Oman Chamber of Commerce and Industry (OCCI).

The delegation, led by OCCI chairperson Redha Juma Mohammad Ali Al-Saleh, discussed investment opportunities in Sindh for Omani investors. Details about investment opportunities in Oman for Pakistani investors were also shared on the occasion.

The meeting was attended by Sindh Industries Minister Jam Ikramullah Dharejo, Special Assistant Syed Qasim Naveed, FPCCI’s Suleman Chawla, Pakistan Ambassador in Oman K.K. Ahsan Wagan and others.

The chief minister said that Karachi, being a port city, had vast investment opportunities. “The Sindh government is working as a partner with the private sector to execute mega projects,” he said.

Mr Shah said the provincial government had created an investment department to facilitate and guide investors in Sindh. “We have simplified the investment process so that investors may not face any hardship,” he said.

The Omani delegation told the Sindh CM that they had an interest to invest in the fisheries sector, agriculture, livestock, construction, water supply and education sector.

The chief minister connected them with the investment department for further coordination and sharing of different projects.
