DUBAI: Prime Minister of Pakistan Nawaz Sharif has appointed Javed Malik, UAE-based prominent Pakistani businessman and media personality, as his Special Envoy.

As Prime Minster’s Special Envoy, Malik would have the global mandate to advise and assist the prime minister and the government of Pakistan on foreign investment and trade and overseas matters.

He would represent the country internationally and highlight the business, trade and investment opportunities in Pakistan, in addition to reaching out to the millions of Pakistanis living across the world who are keen to play an active and meaningful role in Pakistan’s economic revival.

This is Javed Malik’s second Ambassadorial appointment. Previously he served as Pakistan’s Ambassador-at-Large from 2008-2011 and remained actively engaged in various diplomatic initiatives.

He said, “In line with prime minister’s policy to expand trade and attract investment to put Pakistan on the road to economic stability, we have prepared a comprehensive strategy to engage with the international community and highlight the abundance of business, trade and investment opportunities in Pakistan.”

Speaking about his immediate roadmap, Malik said that initially he will focus on UAE and the wider Gulf region. He said that he would be working closely with the UAE authorities in order to make this as a regular feature of bilateral relationship.

Malik had organised the Pakistan-UAE Business and Investment Conference 2010 in which over 700 top businessmen from both countries took part. He is planning to host the second edition of the Pakistan-UAE Business and Investment Conference in the coming days and would be working closely with the UAE authorities in order to make this as a regular feature of bilateral relationship.

“We need to expand the level of interaction between our business communities and create win-win opportunities to facilitate business, trade and investment relations. A series of initiatives would be launched in this regard. Pakistan embassies have been directed by the prime minister to divert their focus on trade and economic diplomacy,” he added.
