Mr. WADA Mitsuhiro a new Japanese Ambassador to Pakistan called on the Federal Minister for Planning Development and Special Initiatives Mr. Asad Umar here in Islamabad on Tuesday. The two dignitaries discuss bilateral ties & future investments in different sectors as well as Special Economic Zones (SEZs).

Federal Minister Asad Umar welcomed the Ambassador to Pakistan and said that the Japanese companies located in Pakistan have established long-standing business relations with Pakistan and contributed to Pakistani economic development through large amounts of investment and employment. Asad Umar invited the Japanese businessmen and investors to visit Pakistan and explore investment opportunities in a broad range of areas, particularly infrastructure development in the country.

Mr. Wada said that it is my pleasure to contribute to the development of Japan-Pakistan relations especially at this very important time and to work in this wonderful country which has a rich history, culture, and also very warm-hearted people. He further added that many Japanese investors are interested in investing in SEZs, we need to facilitate these investors to invest in Pakistan in the future. He assured the Japanese investors would further bring their businesses and forge partnerships with their Pakistani counterparts in days ahead, and requested the Minister for a more liberalized, favorable tax regime in this regard.

The meeting concluded with the hope that the two countries will continue to work together and further strengthen the lateral ties in the days to come.
