The answer is no. I'm part of a group of Overseas Pakistani investors where if we move the market moves. The general thinking now is that even if IK is back, even with a 2/3 majority, the establishment can change things in a blink of an eye. Secondly, rule of law was thrown under the bus, and jungle law was reined supreme; this is not acceptable to OPs who like order and rule of law.
PDM and powers-to-be have lost the OPs for good. The most or I should say bare minimum funds that will be sent is to support family back home and nothing more.
We are creating several funds to basically spear ahead investment in the Gulf.
Of course. The number 1 condition is to have the generals not interfere in any political matters.
It is now evident that Mohammad Bin Salman was unhappy with the PDM. This has been reported by several sources in the past few months. The PDM attempted to gain domestic political points by excessively spreading false propaganda regarding the Makkah watch gifted to Imran Khan by MBS. The PDM's actions did not go unnoticed. As a consequence, Saudi Arabia not only refused to provide guarantees but also declined to provide interest-free loans.
Interestingly, the false narrative that "Imran was incompetent, which is why the Army Chief went to Saudi Arabia and China for a loan," was also debunked. It was, in fact, Imran Khan who convinced the Saudis and Chinese to provide assistance, not the Army Chief.
The end result of engaging in excessive politics is that the PDM must now bear the consequences of their actions, which were also facilitated by the Pakistan Army. Furthermore, it appears that other countries, such as China, Qatar, and the UAE, have also shown reluctance to assist Pakistan due to the exposed state of the PDM leadership. It is clear that the current Pakistani government has lost the trust of many, and its actions have had severe consequences on the state.
No doubt. The current economic malaise can be directly blamed on Bajwa and company. The fact that no single country is willing to come forward and assist Pakistan speaks volume.
