Meekal Ahmed | 11 years ago | Reply I agree with the above comment completely. We don't need more conferences and certainly not in London. We know what needs to be done in the energy sector. Just do it and stop wasting the nation's time.
Nadir El-Edroos | 11 years ago | Reply Would the CM like to share who is footing the bill for this exhibition in London? First they should atleast judge if there is any interest in investing in Pakistan to begin with before holding a conference. The last time I checked the UK was still struggling to recover from recession facing the largest ever contraction in GDP in 60 years. In the age of video conferencing, the internet etc, a country failing to meet its debt obligations is hardly in a position to hold conferences in foreign countries!
