Why would anyone invest when they can't import goods freely, can't repatriate some profits overseas, the country is terrorist-riden with lynchings and bombings daily, food shortage, and on the brink of default! (Default most likely before 15-April). Not to forget why invest in a country with a numbskull as a Finance Minister.

UAE holds world record of procuring cheapest Solar Power Plants at US Cents 1.30 per KWH only due to transparency and best practices adopted. Noon League made contracts during last tenure at US Cents 12 per KWH. Life & business in Pakistan has been made unviable due to world's most expensive PPAs & world record power theft . No solution except supremacy of law which looks impossible.

Wondering why would a foreign well reputed company invest in Pakistan? Maybe some connection with PM's son, who happens to be in Solar Business.
