ISLAMABAD: The Canadian High Commission is establishing a facilitation desk to woo Pakistani investors and develop business links between entrepreneurs in both countries.

Talking to the participants at the ‘Investment Round Table for Pakistan Entrepreneurs’ organised by the Canadian diplomatic mission on Wednesday, High Commissioner Greg Giokas said that his country’s friendly investment regime is recognised for its low costs and low taxes.

“The Canadian government is interested in attracting foreign direct investment to facilitate economic growth for Canadians,” he said.

He said that the business environment in Pakistan would benefit from Canada’s example of improved investments and attractive policies.

The participants were informed that Canada provides a top performing economy for businesses to innovate, grow and succeed.

The event was attended by businessmen who already have investments in Canada as well as those seeking to avail opportunities. Most Pakistanis have invested in consumer outlets and non-technical businesses in Canada, which were an extension of their core businesses in Pakistan.
