Cheng has been in the Pakistani business for 17 years and in the service sector for 13 years. Cheng believes that there are many quality hotels in Pakistan with exquisite decor of rooms and food. Chinese hotels have also played a part in boosting tourism, accommodation and supply chain industries in Pakistan.
At this stage, the scale of Chinese hotels in Pakistan is relatively limited and there is huge room for improvement in the market.
