The Chief Minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Mehmood Khan, Chairman BOI, Atif R. Bokhari, Finance Minister KP, Taimur Saleem Khan Jhagra, international investors, and foreign delegates are scheduled to attend the event.

The conference received an overwhelming response from the private sector, and several companies and individuals from different sectors of KP and the rest of the country have confirmed their active participation in the investment conference.

SEZs and other Industrial Parks of KP will also be brought into the spotlight.
