LAHORE, Feb 13 (APP):Pakistan offers tremendous opportunities for businesses and the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) projects

Regional Chairman and Vice President Chaudhry Arfan Yousaf expressed
these views on the inauguration of Flynas Airline, according to Federation’s spokesman here on Tuesday.
Chaudhry Arfan said, “We live in the world of connectivity, and

and affordable flights to business community, religious and other travelers to and from Saudi Arabia especially Hajj and Umar pilgrims.
