    NEW YORK: Pakistan’s Ambassador to the United Nations Maleeha Lodhi has invited the American business community to the country, which she said offers “the most investor-friendly policies in the [South Asia] region”.

    Speaking before the New York’s Nasdaq bell ringing ceremony on Friday to mark Pakistan’s 69th Independence Day, Ms Lodhi said, “Pakistan’s strategic location gives it a pivotal role in promoting regional connectivity.”

    On China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), she informed the business leaders that “plans are under way to make Pakistan a regional economic hub, providing trade, energy and communication corridors linking Central Asia to South and Southwest Asia and beyond”.

    “Pakistan today has a functioning democracy, an independent judiciary and a free and lively media,” she understated.

    The ambassador observed that the country’s economy has “staged an impressive recovery while our security situation is improving by the day.”

    “Pakistanis are not only making a mark in their countries of adoption but sending back remittances which are at a record level today,” she said.

    Earlier, top officials of Nasdaq — Andew Hall and David Wicks — congratulated the government and people of Pakistan on the Independence, after Hall introduced Ms Lodhi, said a press release.

    Pakistan Consul General Raja Ali Ejaz, Pakistan-American Business Association (PABA) Chairman M. Siddique Sheikh and its President Keith Segerson also attended.

    “This year’s Independence Day coincides with a remarkable recovery in Pakistan’s economy.” Segerson said in a statement. “This is a very exciting time for Pakistan to attract foreign investment and for US-based companies to benefit from lucrative incentives this country offers.”

    Pakistan tycoon to build world's tallest tower


    Pakistani construction tycoon Malik Riaz has signed a multi-billion dollar deal with Abu Dhabi group to build the world's tallest building in the country overtaking Dubai's Burj Khalifa.



    The project is likely to come up on an island some 3 to 4 kilometres off the coast of Karachi and into the Arabian sea.


    Riaz is confident that the project will generate around 2.5 million jobs and promote investment opportunities for different industries.


    Riaz signed the USD 45 billion deal yesterday with the Abu Dhabi group which also successfully runs the Al-Falah bank chain in Pakistan.

    @Neo, How is that coming out for you people? :rofl::rofl:
