Pakistan and the United States possess huge potential of enhancing bilateral cooperation in trade, economic and other diverse fields and sectors. Pakistan is a lucrative market for foreign investors and both countries should facilitate enhanced interaction between their private sectors to explore all untapped areas of mutual cooperation.
Misperception about Pakistan is major barrier for US investors and stakeholders must play role in removing this wrong perception by presenting true potential of Pakistan market to them. Energy, oil & gas, housing, hospitality, automobile, gypsum and others as potential sectors for US investors in Pakistan
Pakistan is more interested in trade with US instead of aid and urged that US should provide preferential access to Pakistan products to its market. Several Special Economic Zones will be set up in Pakistan under CPEC and US companies must explore JVs and investment in these SEZs with technology transfer to Pakistan. The US technology can help Pakistani private sector in value addition of products and increasing exports. Pakistan has a big pool of young IT professionals and US companies should focus on importing quality software products from Pakistan at competitive prices.
