We are going to showcase these policies, our potentials and natural endowment and resources,” he said in a video message.
Rashakai SEZ, a project under the umbrella of China Economic Corridor (CPEC) could be one of the attractions for the foreign investors and Pakistani diaspora. The Rashakai SEZ, which is spread over an area of approximately 1,000 acres of land, is located at Nowshera KP. “A number of foreign investors are already there, so the presence of foreign investors could encourage other foreigners to come and invest,” Peshawar-based Journalist Waqas Shah told Gwadar Pro, adding besides SEZs the province had a great potential for investment in the sectors of mines and mineral and tourism.
The Government of KP has launched a website to connect potential investors with the stakeholders, which is also providing all requisite information about the potential investment sectors.
