    This is not how you invite people to invest.

    Wow! Shameless!!!! This guy should have been fired on the spot. It almost looks like Obama gave him some material to read, and now Obama is supervising its read out as well.

    Yes, Nawaz and Zardari were absolutely pathetic. But we need to point out the flaws in IK so he can remedy them. The worst friends and well wishers are those who keep silent on your deficiencies.

    Mate, that is why the stunted growth is dangerous thing because they fall for propaganda... IK has spoken honestly and eloquently. His sombreness conveys to listener the gravity of the situation and the true potential of the country simultaneously.

    I didn’t liked the Q&A though. Many of his answers were “in the process, planning to, establishing”.... investers dont like such grammer.

    The wayhe is running govt. there is not much difference left in him and the PML-N/PPP mafia. Zardari is in power already in Sindh and Nawaz is also their thru his bureaucrat mafia around PTI team. Khwab dikhaaye hain to decisions bhi lo, civil service or police main reforms karo. Bureaucrat mafia ko control karo warna its curtains for PTI govt. in 1 year.

    Imran Bey isn’t taking it easy at all!! I won’t be surprised if he travels to the moon next time riding on an Elon Musk rocket to further the cause for Pak....

    Corruption is a serious problem and needs to be addressed - and i commend this government on doing what it can to root out this evil. But this is for Pakistanis only.

    Investors on the other hand don't give a sh*t about corruption. Just look at India - who are at least equally as corrupt as us! IK needs to get out of his depressive mode and sell Pakistan (so to speak) - tell the potential investors about the initiatives being taken to boost GDP growth, the incentives being offered to investors, the opportunities available etc all he is doing is putting them off with all his depressive talk. He seems like a totally different person than he used to be - out of his depth, out of steam, and really exhausted.

    May be it's just the pressure of the first few months of government and inexperience. I hope he performs better in the future.

    I agree he needs to do more selling and less highlighting negatives which should remain for internal audience.

    But being honest is always a good strategy investors will appreciate that.

    Honest Answers :enjoy:

    But you need to be diplomatic to attract investments, honesty seldom works. Moreover investors prefer to the point, crisp and well-prepared answers. Hope IK will be better prepared for China trip.

    Pakistanis better keep their fingers crossed :azn:

    Then be selectively honest - depending on the situation and location. Saying we are desperate before departing to an investment conference is just stupid! Himself bringing up the problems in Pakistan (without being asked) or continuously raising the problems in the country at an investment conference is equally stupid.

    The worst thing is - IK is a smart guy. I don't know what's happened to him. He seems to be totally out of character recently.

    The last question from UAE Sheikhu "Why don't you become one country with great India" :lol:----Goes to show how ignorant they are. Iran being a Muslim state is a thorn in their royal sides, but they want us to merge with an oppressive Hindu state.
    Not very articulate responses from IK, he should have gone prepared and taken more audacious approach to address their idiotic questions.

    Frankly speaking, he totally looked unprepared and didn't market Pakistan well.
