Pakistan also has economic relations with Tatarstan and Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif visited Tatarstan in 1999. There are strong opportunities for promoting bilateral economic cooperation between Pakistan and Tatarstan. Both the countries can further promote bilateral relations in agriculture, engineering, informational technology, energy, petrochemical, livestock, tourism and other sectors. I invite the investors of Tatarstan to invest in Pakistan, especially in the Punjab. We will provide them every opportunity.CM Punjab-2The investors of Tatarstan should sit together with the investors of Pakistan and the Punjab, and develop a roadmap for promoting bilateral economic relations. Punjab has vast opportunities for investment due to its strong infrastructure. The investors of Tatarstan should come forward and invest here. As a result of 54 billion dollars investment under the CPEC, trade and economic activities have been boosted in the region, and it can be helpful in promoting economic relations with Tatarstan and Russian Federation. With the help of gigantic project of CPEC, economic and trade relations with Pakistan can be boosted with the Russian Federation and Tatarstan. Serious efforts have been made under the leadership of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to overcome the challenges of terrorism, fanaticism and energy crisis. Insha’Allah, with the completion of energy projects, the decade-long load shedding in the country, would come to an end from the beginning of next year, and there would be light everywhere.

There is strong economic potential in Tatarstan, and it has good expertise in e-governance, information technology, agriculture, and livestock. We want to get benefit from your experience, vision, and expertise. Your e-governance model is also impressive. We will benefit from your expertise in the field of IT. The use of IT has been promoted in different departments. The 700 police stations in the Punjab have been inter-connected through the IT. 50000 tablets are being given in primary and middle schools; while lakhs of students get laptops every year on merit and performance. He said the Punjab is the biggest province of Pakistan with the population over ten crores, and there is the tremendous potential for investment in different fields. Due to the energy crisis, the investors are reluctant to invest in the country, and this energy crisis has damaged the national economy. However, the energy crisis is about to end due to sincere efforts of the government. Out of 54 billion dollars investment under the CPEC, 36 billion dollars are being spent on energy projects. Work on the energy production projects from coal, solar, wind, hydel, gas and other sources, is in progress speedily. While federal and the Punjab governments are also setting up 3600 megawatt gas power projects from their own sources; and these would be completed in record time.

We condemn the elements linking terrorism and fanaticism with Islam, as Islam is the religion of peace. Terrorism and fanaticism have no link with Islam; no one is authorized to shed blood of the innocent people. He said that Pakistan is a victim of terrorism and the Pakistani nation has rendered great sacrifices in the war against terrorism. A terrorist has no religion nor has any link with any particular color or caste. Similarly, he has no geographical identity. The killer of innocent humans is only a terrorist. Islamic teachings teach equality, justice, promotion of religious harmony and provision of equal opportunities for progress. The ‘Misak-e-Madina’ is the highest example of it. Steps have been taken under the leadership of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif for the promotion of religious harmony, love, and brotherhood because it is the way forward. He said that terrorism is an international issue, and we will have to jointly fight it. The people of Pakistan are peaceful citizens. The promotion of inter-faith harmony is need of the hour.
