    Good to know that a Pakistani has been appointed the head of a multinational group in Pakistan.

    The government should make policy to force the other multinationals to do the same, especially the vendors and operators

    I appreciate the appointment of Mr. Atif Bajwa as Group President of Abu Dhabi Group.It exhibits the commitment of Chairman of ADG to provide the best possible services to the stake holders/ customers of various companies operating under the umbrella of his group. Besides this, recent rendezvous compliments the love and confidence of His Highness in Pakistan and Pakistani nation.

    No doubt, ADG is single largest foreign investor group in Pakistan and I fervently hope Mr. Bajwa will will prove himself as robust catalyst with rich experience of his trait to turn around group companies in Pakistan which is definitely an uphill task. I wish him best of luck & success in his future endeavors.
