Pakistan government is seeking Japan’s assistance to upgrade vehicle testing facilities in the country, said Prime Minister’s Advisor on Commerce, Textiles, Industries, and Investment, Abdul Razak Dawood.
Razak Dawood held talks with the Chairperson and CEO of Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO), Mr. Hiroyuki Ishige. The official statement said:
Japan has a large share in the auto market and Pakistan needs its help in vehicle testing system.
Ishige told the officials that the request will be conveyed to Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry (METI). He also highlighted various auto companies’ interest in expanding business in Pakistan.
Talking about the new government’s efforts to bring investment in Pakistan, JETRO’s CEO said:
JETRO recognizes that investment culture in Pakistan is improving, as the country is quickly establishing itself as a gateway to Central Asia as well as the Middle East.
Japan is home to some of the biggest car manufacturers in the world and seeking help from industry experts to ensure compliance with modern day standards is definitely a step in the right direction.
