Dr. Naveed Iftikhar, Adjunct Faculty, LUMS moderated the discussion.

In his remarks, Ambassador Khan underlined that enhancing Pakistan-U.S. trade, investment and economic relations has remained a key theme during the three summit level meetings between President Trump and Prime Minister Imran Khan, held during the last year.

The Ambassador also highlighted the investment incentives in the tech sector and the various initiatives taken by the Government of Pakistan to facilitate IT investors. He stressed the need to overcome challenges associated with the stereotypical perception of Pakistan, which is a dynamic and vibrant nation and has remained a long term and committed partner of the U.S.
