ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s Ambassador to Japan, Farukh Amil delivered on Thursday a lecture to senior students at Rikkyo University organized by Professor Sumiko Iwao and emphasized the need to grow the volume of bilateral trade from US$ 2.5 billion to a higher level as it was not commensurate with the true potential of the two countries.
The lecture was attended by senior students comprised of senior bankers, professors, scientists, academics and executives from private sector companies.
Highlighting Pakistan-Japan relations in their socio-cultural, politico-economic and historical perspective, he dilated upon Pakistan’s potential in agriculture, trade and its abundant human and natural resources.
He presented a realistic picture of Pakistan as a vibrant country with a progressive vision in line with the ideals of Quaid-e-Azam, including where women participated in every sphere of life ranging from teaching, medicine, business, politics and legal fields to fighter pilots.
He said Pakistan was an attractive and profitable investment destination, where along with other investors, the Japanese automobile industry (Toyota, Honda and Suzuki) remained profitable.
