Saudi Vision 2030 provides opportunities to realize Naya Pakistan’s ambitious plan: PM

Islamabad

Prime Minister Imran Khan said that owing to their complementarities in the socioeconomic fundamentals, Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 provided opportunities to Pakistan to engage with Saudi Arabia in realizing Naya Pakistan’s ambitious plan.

“I must say that there are significant complementarities in the socio-economic fundamentals of the “Naya Pakistan” and the Saudi Vision 2030.

Both lay emphasis on economic opportunity and diversity, domestic growth, modernization and development, and trade linkages and connectivity,” the prime minister said in an interview with Saudi Arabia’s newspaper.

The prime minister said Pakistan could contribute manpower; both skilled and semi-skilled besides sharing its expertise in other sectors like IT, infrastructure development, and agriculture.

He said Pakistan and Saudi Arabia had historically enjoyed long-standing fraternal ties, rooted deep in common faith, shared history and mutual support.

Both countries have stood by each other, through thick and thin, regardless of the change in leadership.

“We never had the reason to reposition our relations with Saudi Arabia in the wake of regional or international developments – in the past as well in as contemporary times.

Relations between the two countries have withstood the test of time,” he remarked.
Imran Khan said both the countries had a special bond for seven decades now.

“It is now our earnest desire to transform this relationship into a deep, diverse and mutually beneficial strategic partnership.

We are now working to consolidate historical gains by exploring new and non-conventional areas of cooperation.

We want our trade rela-tions and investment cooperation to be com-mensurate with excellent political relations,” he said. “I am confident that the Investment Forum would usher in a new dynamism in our invest-ment cooperation.”
