I hope that this effort bears fruit, and there is significant investment in Pakistan by Kuwait. However, I would like to point out that the FDI should have an export component to earn foreign exchange which is sufficient to cover any repatriation of profits. We do not want FDI to become a drain on our precious foreign exchange reserves, but would like the FDI to contribute to them. Also it would be ideal if significant numbers of jobs are created at all levels for local people, and technology and know how are transferred to Pakistan.
