Days after a meeting between high-profile delegation of both countries, Egyptian ambassador to Pakistan Ahmed Fadel Yacoub has revealed Egyptian companies will be investing $1 billion in Pakistan.

“Investment projects will begin in the next one year. The understanding was reached during the visit of two high-profile business delegations from Egypt to Pakistan during the month of October,” said Yacoub, Arab News reported.

The envoy further said that the investments are coming from the private sector and will be in different sectors, mainly in energy, building, pharmaceutical, halal food and tourism. “From the information provided by the representatives [of these companies], the investment would be approximately $1 billion,” said the envoy.
