LAHORE: A number of foreign companies were operational in Pakistan successfully and local companies should have access to all international forums where they could sell their products, said Lahore Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) President Almas Hyder.
A four-member USAID mission, led by Provincial Director Kevin Sharp, discussed the economy and trade relations with the LCCI president.
There was a lot of scope in Pakistan’s sports, textile, information technology, engineering, surgical goods, leather and various other sectors, he said and added that interested foreign franchises would be welcomed in Pakistan. Responding to a question, the chamber president said the PM’s recent visit to the US was the beginning of a new era.
Hyder said the development of human capital had the most significant impact on growth and performance of all sectors.
“USAID can play a role in this regard by facilitating knowledge partnerships between skill development institutions and high-quality private-sector employers and international training providers,” he said.
