While addressing a business forum in Ankara, capital of Turkey, he talked about taking the trade ties between Pakistan and Turkey to a higher level, and invited members of the Turkish business community to invest and participate in the opportunities arising from the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), and the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). He said that through BRI, connectivity will be enhanced, which will open up areas which have been deserted in the past.



Addressing a business forum of the Union of Chambers and Commodity Exchanges of Turkey (TOBB) in Ankara on Jan. 3rd, Pakistani Prime Minister said his government will provide all possible assistance and support to the Turkish investors in Pakistan, H.E.Khan said that Pakistan is a virgin territory as a lot of trade areas have not been exploited yet, adding that huge reserves of oil, gas, copper, coal and other admirals are yet to be unexplored.


TOBB is the highest legal entity in Turkey representing the private sector with 365 member associations from local chambers of commerce and industry, and also the member of Silk Road Chamber of International Commerce (SRCIC).
