Prime Minister Shehbaz Invites Turkish Investment In A Massive Solar Project


On Saturday, Pakistani Prime Minister Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif urged Turkish businesses to finance a 10,000-megawatt solar power project in the country.

The prime minister made the promise to investors during his address to the Turkiye-Pakistan Business Council, saying that the Pakistani government will make it easy for them to participate in the project.

Shehbaz reportedly declared that his administration will no longer accept any snags and obstructions in the path of investment from foreign businessmen like the Turkish brothers, according to a state-run news agency.

He said that more Turkish firms were keen to come to Pakistan after hearing about it during his conversation with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

The prime minister expressed sorrow that the previous administration had not compensated Turkish businesses for their investments in Pakistan.

“I want to convey this message to all, through you that we are brothers and family and will not tolerate such snags and impediments which hurt our ties,”he said and promised that his administration will eliminate all the problems and solve their real concerns.

According to Shehbaz Sharif, an agreement was made between the two governments to increase trade to $5 billion over the following three years.

When compared to Turkey’s yearly commerce of about $250 billion, the 1.5 billion USD in goods and services exchanged annually between Pakistan and Turkey seemed like little change.

“Though the people of the two countries speak different languages, but they understand each other as and their hearts beat together,” he said, adding that the amount of business and trade between the two countries did not accurately reflect the historical relations and fraternal ties between the two nations.

Let’s put the past behind us and move quickly in the present to make up for our mistakes and reap the rewards of our labour. To show the world that we brothers have the will, dedication, and sincerity of intent to turn our words into action, he continued, “let’s synergize and move swiftly.”

He argued that the commercial and business links between the friendly nations should continue even if the governments changed.

The prime minister also praised President Erdogan for saving the globe by organising the delivery of wheat from Ukraine via his diplomatic efforts.

He also lauded Secretary General of the United Nations Antonio Guterres for his outstanding work in this area.
