The Pakistan Stock Exchange (PSX) organised a meeting with the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) minister of finance and health and industry leaders on Wednesday.

The meeting was convened to bring industry leaders and senior representatives of the K-P government together, to discuss prospects of investment, expanding industry, logistics, trade, and businesses in the northwestern province and far-flung areas of the country.

Queries, suggestions, and points given by the industry leaders were addressed by the minister and the K-P Board of Investment.

PSX Managing Director Farrukh Khan said, “As the third-largest province of Pakistan, contributing 10% to the country’s GDP and 20% to the mining output, K-P has a diverse economy, ranging from forestry to agriculture to large-scale manufacturing and tourism, and is a thriving part of Pakistan, providing excellent opportunities for investors and businesses.”
