The conference was organized during the month of KP at Expo 2020 Dubai, to invite foreign investors to invest in the province, known as the “land of opportunity”. January is the month of KP at the Pakistan Pavilion at the ongoing Expo 2020 Dubai.
The investment groups that have signed MoUs include Enertech-Kuwait Investment Authority (KIA) Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power (KHNP), Private Office of Sheikh Ahmed Dalmook-Al- Maktoum, Samara Group, VR Group, Sigma Group, Malik Foams, Nobel Future Land, InfraCo Asia and others.
The investors have signed the MoUs to develop food-processing zones, integrated tourism zones (ITZ), Solarisation of Economic Zones, Construction of Transmission Lines across KP, agriculture and livestock sectors.
Out of the 44 MoUs, 11 were signed between Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Economic Zones Development and Management Company (KPEZDMC) and foreign investment companies. A tripartite MoU was signed between Pakhtunkhwa Energy Development Organization (PEDO), InfraCo Asia (from Singapore) and KPEZDMC for polarization of All Economic Zones in KP.
