LAHORE: The atmosphere is now conducive for investment and trade in Punjab by foreign investors in all development sectors where they will be provided fool-proof security, said Provincial Minister for Labour and Human Resource Raja Ashfaq Sarwar.
拉合尔：省劳动与人力资源部长Raja Ashfaq Sarwar称，旁遮普省现在欢迎外国投资者在所有的发展领域投资和贸易，他们将会受到全方位的安全保证。
During a meeting with a six-member delegation of Chinese investors and industrialists, led by the director of renowned automobile manufacturer JAC Motors, Chen Zhi Qiang, matters of bilateral interest were discussed along with mutual promotion in different sectors including automobile, infrastructure development, agriculture, livestock, energy and trade.
The Chinese delegates expressed their keen interest in setting up an automobile manufacturing unit in Punjab.
The minister welcomed the proposal and said the Punjab government had set up a number of industrial zones in the province with tax exemptions to encourage investment, particularly Chinese investment since both countries had a remarkable opportunity for economic, industrial and business growth under the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).
He said CPEC would provide employment for the youth of Punjab and for which the government had drafted a plan of action for imparting latest skills training to about two million youth.
Sarwar also praised efforts of the Chinese government to eliminate the energy crisis from Pakistan and cooperate in mega projects of infrastructure development.
Premier Group of Companies CEO Shaukat Mubarak and Premier Engineering Pakistan Country Head Ahmad Danial were also present on the occasion.

Although would have preferred a European brand to come to Pakistan, Cheap Chinese cars will be welcome, with CPEC parts and cars will be shipped cheaply.

Would love to see the big 3’s sabotaged by Chines automobile industry. Its a shame that such a horrendous car as suzuki mehran now costs 7 lacs. It’d be a welcome change..

Any investment is welcome especially it will help common people against the big 3 auto monopoly in Pakistan. But we want major Chinese firms like *Foxconn* to invest in Pakistan.

Foxconn is not Chinese but Taiwanese and they have no reason to set up shop in Pakistan.

Seriously , Chinese Cars ? I know they would be no where near as bad as the perception they carry, but I am yet to meet anyone who wants to buy Chinese cars. They would have to put up a very compelling value proposition to even consider such an option.
How have these cars fared against the competition in non-Chinese markets ?
