However, investing by Pakistani Investors in Dubai is good for Pakistan’s economy and real estate. The UAE government and different companies showing their interest to invest back in Pakistan. The UAE government investment will help Pakistan in overall economic growth and performance, and companies are showing interest to invest in the Real Estate Sector in Pakistan.
We would like to share the investment of the UAE in Pakistan in detail, and how it will assist Pakistan in economic growth:
UAE’s Intention to Invest in Pakistan
It is true that Pakistan is the 3rd highest property investor in Dubai, due to which the government of UAE also shows their keen interest to invest back in Pakistan. According to the Emirates News Agency WAM, UAE will invest 1 billion dollars in different sectors of Pakistan.
The amount which UAE wants to invest will be invested in various economic and investment sectors, as per the WAM this investment will cover Gas, energy infrastructure, financial services, renewable energy, health care, etc.
The investment of Pakistani investors in Dubai real estate built a two-way relationship, as a result, the renowned company Al-Ghurair Group of Dubai announced the investment of millions of dollars in the real estate sector of Pakistan.
The purpose of that investment is to introduce the UAE building structure and living standards in the beautiful city of Islamabad. This well-known company investment will also attract investors from other countries to invest in Pakistan.
Secondly, the most important step taken by the government of Pakistan is to attract investors from foreign. To invest in the real estate sector in Pakistan there are flexible policies that investors would love to follow. Today, this industry is booming and a number of projects are under development.
After the response of Pakistani investors and government policies, the third and essential factor that attracts investors is the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). The government of China is building a road network in Pakistan and a road to Gwadar Port investing trillions of dollars. In the future, Pakistan will be the most important geographical region.
From this country, great China will trade with the world so investors are showing their interest to invest in this strategic region, especially in the real estate sector.
All of the above are the logical reasons why people are showing interest, but due to the economic instability and high inflation rate, Pakistan has to build a bridge of 4 billion dollars with different countries. After the announcement of Dubai’s investment of 1 billion dollars, KSA is also helping Pakistan.
The International Monitoring Fund (IMF) is looking for the agreement of KSA with Pakistan for financial support. The government of KSA will extend the Oil-Loan facility to the southern countries of Asia, Pakistan will be a part of this as this country is facing the highest inflation rate in Asia.
The role of Pakistani investors in the Dubai real estate market is no doubt helping Pakistan to stabilize its economic condition and fulfill the IMF requirements. 1 billion dollars is enough for different sectors of Pakistan to settle and grow. The geographical region of this country is also playing an important role, the bright future of this country is near. Like the real estate sector, Pakistan will face a tremendous boom in all sectors, especially in the investment sector but the country needs to be stable politically and recover the value of the rupee by having greater reserves with the State Bank of Pakistan.
