ISLAMABAD: A four-member delegation of British investors called on Senate Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani here at Parliament House on Friday and discussed ways to enhance investment in the country.

The delegation was led by Albert Barry of Cribgogh Ltd and included Thomas Albert Lesse, Jeremy Derek Moxey and Andrew John Edwards of the Trulux Group.

Apprising the delegation of Pakistan’s friendly investment policies, the Senate chairman said the environment for investors in Pakistan was conducive.

“Business and economic ties between the two countries will help bring people closer. In order to stabilise the economy, we should try to build confidence of investors,” he said.

The chairman highlighted the importance of Gwadar and how the Gwadar Port can become a game-changer for the entire region, adding that the multi-billion project is emerging as a new economic hub and British investors need to seize the opportunity by investing in Gwadar.

“Gwadar will play a key role in the development and prosperity of the region,” he said. On the occasion, Sadiq Sanjrani emphasized that scores of Pakistanis living in the UK are playing the role of a bridge between the two countries.

Senators Shibli Faraz and Saifullah Khan Niazi were also present during the meeting.
