Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said on Friday Pakistan is the best place to invest in given its geographical location and lands full of natural resources.

“Measures against terrorism have yielded positive results, resulting in improvement in law and order and internal situation of the country," the premier said while addressing the business community in Davos, Switzerland.

“Pakistan has been experiencing economic stability in the country as economic development is linked with peace and security.”

Nawaz said the country's GDP growth rate was three per cent, currently it is 4.2 per cent and hopefully it would cross a five per cent rate, Radio Pakistan reported.
