PAKISTAN: Ambassador Asks Textile Firms To Support Sudan
Speaking at a reception hosted by the SITE Association of Industry last week, Shaikh said that although help has been offered by Indian and Chinese companies, the Sudanese would prefer to receive assistance from Pakistan in revive the country's industry.
Shaikh said he had submitted a proposal to the Export Promotion Bureau (EPB), but no action had yet been taken.
In his presentation, Shaikh explained that the economy of the African country had started to pick up and the economic and political conditions in Sudan were conducive to business. The Pakistani envoy said many companies had opened new offices and business was expected to flourish over the next four to five years.
