March 29, 2019: Pak-US Business Council on Friday urged the world for revisiting their visa policies to facilitate Pakistani business community and tourists after Prime Minister Imran Khan introduced liberal visa regime to attract foreign investors and tourists.
In a statement, founder Chairman Pak-US Business Council and Senior Vice President of SAARC CCI Iftikhar Ali Malik said there must be an incentive package for Pakistan for being a front-line state in combating terrorism with the USA and other world countries.
“There was a need for duty cut and market access for Pakistani textile goods to the global market including USA,” he added.
He further said visa restrictions should be eased for the Pakistani businessmen and exporters and joint efforts were needed to further cement the existing economic ties between Pakistan and global private sector.
He suggested also Prime Minister Imran Khan to give special task to the Finance Minister and the cabinet to raise the investment-to-GDP ratio to 20-25% within the government’s five-year tenure. This will improve job creation, productivity and exports.
