ISLAMABAD: A delegation of UK-based investors, led by Farah Waters, called on Finance Minister Ishaq Dar at the Finance Ministry on Thursday to explore investment opportunities in Pakistan. In her presentation, Waters mentioned that the companies Seacrest Shipping Company Limited and Salfo & Associates are interested in doing business with Pakistan. The companies provide services in areas of port and shipping, engineering, infrastructure development and logistics and they would like to set up joint ventures with the Pakistani investors.“We would like to provide assistance in various projects related to infrastructure and energy. As we know that Pakistan is keen on developing energy projects, we could provide help in coal transportation and consultancy services in various projects,” said Farah. Meanwhile, Dar was excited at the keen interest shown by these investors and hoped that the group will participate in competitive biddings.
