Sweden and Finland have had longstanding business relationships with Pakistan. Swedish companies such as H&M, Lindex, IKEA, Bombardier and others are successfully operating in various areas in Pakistan. Likewise, Finnish companies such as Nokia, Wärtsila, Stora Enso are also very much part of Pakistani business landscape. Although, the business relationships between the countries have traditionally been very rewarding, there is still a huge potential awaiting Nordic businesses to explore. For instance our energy sector offers great possibilities of investment extending from traditional means of energy generation to modern Green Technology. Additionally, Pakistan has lucrative investment opportunities in the areas of machinery and technology, paper and pulp, telecommunications. Pakistan also offers export opportunities in garments, apparel, cereals, sport goods, leather, surgical instruments. These are just few most common sectors.
I would like to encourage all Nordic companies to participate, see and explore Pakistan and tap all the markets where the opportunities are awaiting them.
