US Mission to PAKISTAN host three day private sector engagement forum in South Punjab. The united States Mission to Pakistan along with the Punjab Provincial Government opened a three-day private sector forum to identify opportunities and challenges for commercial and social investments in the region.
The Forum was organized by the United states agency for International Development (USAID) Punjab enabling environment project (PEEP) through the USAID Lahore office in Collaboration with the South Punjab Private Sector.
Recognizing investments gaps, formulating common strategies, and establishing a broad framework to enhance investments will go a long way in helping develop South Punjab, said Catherine Rodriguez, US consul General in Lahore.
USAID’S PEEP program has also established sustainable initiatives to address a number of challenges, including the absence of academia-industry linkages for technology driven research and development, and access to finance and markets.
