ISLAMABAD: A 21-member delegation of French Business Confederation (MEDEF), headed by Total Global Services President and France-Pakistan Business Council Chairman Thierry Pflimin, would land in Pakistan on a three-day visit to explore business, trade and investment opportunities.
Ambassador of Pakistan to France MoinulHaque, who gave a detailed pre-visit briefing to the delegation earlier this week in Paris, termed the visit as historic. He said that the visit, which would commence from April 4, would provide members of the French delegation a first-hand experience of attractive investment opportunities and facilitation offered by Pakistan to the foreign investors.
The ambassador briefed them about the economic turnaround of Pakistan, which has been termed as one of the world’s top emerging economies. He hoped that the visit of the MEDEF delegation to Pakistan will give a renewed impetus to business, trade and investment ties between the two countries.
The MEDEF visit is jointly organised by the Embassy of Pakistan in Paris and the Embassy of France in Pakistan. It consists of senior representatives of renowned French companies including Airbus, Credit Agricole, Engie, JC Decaux, Suez, Thales and Total.
The delegation would visit the cities of Islamabad and Karachi to hold meetings with ministers and senior officials and as well as private and public sector companies, Business Council of Pakistan and Pakistan-France Business Alliance.
MEDEF is composed of 85 sectoral federations and 155 local federations bringing together on a single platform more than 750,000 small, medium and large French enterprises.
