ISLAMABAD: Pakistan offers the most lucrative investment opportunities and an enabling economic environment to foreign investors, especially in the auto sector, Finance Minister Ishaq Dar said on Monday.

During a meeting with newly appointed Japanese Ambassador Takashi Kurai, the finance minister said Japanese companies could also avail themselves of Pakistan’s liberal investment regime.

The envoy visited Mr Dar to discuss investment plans of the Japanese companies in the wake of auto policy announced by the Govern­ment of Pakistan.

The re-launching of Yamaha last year reflected that Japanese companies’ interest in Pakistan had revived, Mr Dar said.

Appreciated Japan International Co­­operation Agency’s contribution for various projects in Pakistan, the minister also discussed with Mr Kurai the agency’s financing of the Polio Eradication programme and signing of agreement in this regard.
