A group of Chinese investors met Chief Minister Pervez Khattak on Wednesday and offered to invest in hydel power projects in the province.
The foreign delegation pledged investment worth billions, especially in the Malakand region. Khattak appreciated their offer and said the province would provide the best security to their engineers and all possible facilities to ensure the projects are completed promptly and without any hindrance.
The delegation earlier visited various areas in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa that could serve as potential sites for construction of hydel projects. The provincial government termed their plans safe and environment-friendly, and hoped the projects would lead to increased employment for residents.
The investors said they were not worried about their safety and, being neighbours, considered the province their second home. They said they were looking forward to working for the betterment of Pakistanis.
