ISLAMABAD, May 5 (APP): Member European Parliament, Amjad Bashir
hosted a lunch, at the European Parliament, in the honour of delegation of government of Balochistan currently in Brussels on a four days official visit.
According to a message received here Friday from Brussels, the

The official spokesman of the Government of Balochistan, Anwaar Ul Haq Kakar is also accompanying the delegation.
In his address on the occasion, Bashir said, “The CPEC itself
would not have been set in motion had the Pakistani military and police authorities not secured the area against insurgents and terrorism.
I was exhilarated to hear that special free trade zones are being
considered in Gwadar and alongside the CPEC corridor. Free trade zones mean that all potential investors, foreign and Pakistani, benefit from a level playing field,” he said.
Bashir termed this as a kind of news what the Pakistani diaspora
everywhere and all potential investors and entrepreneurs love to hear.
On the basis of his experience as a successful businessman, Bashir
said, “Balochistan is a potential winner; this is the racing horse I would put my money on.”
He stressed the importance of making people in Europe aware of and
fully appreciate the new potential miracle.
He exhorted to spread the message of future potential of Balochistan of becoming a successful business destination.
The lunch was attended by a number of European parliamentarians who
interacted with the members of delegation and discussed matters of mutual concerns.
