QUETTA: On Thursday, the Balochistan Chief Minister and the British High Commissioner agreed to raise British investment in Balochistan.
British High Commissioner Dr Christian Turner met with Chief Minister Abdul Qudoos Bizenjo to explore increasing British investment in the province.
Balochistan’s Board of Investment and Trade contacted the British Deputy High Commissioner for trade for follow-up measures.

Mr Bizenjo updated the British High Commissioner on the Reko-Diq and other developments in the province.

The High Commissioner praised the Balochistan government’s position on Reko-Diq and said resuming work will bolster international investors’ trust in Balochistan.

Dr. Turner added that Pakistan and the UK had historical links, and increasing engagement with Pakistan was a priority for the British government.

He said DFID and UK Aid were aiding Pakistan in education, health, climate change, scholarships, females’ education, mother and child health. He also said that around 200 British firms have invested in Pakistan.

He praised Balochistan’s law and order condition and promised that the UK Aid package will encompass health, education, climate change, and capacity development projects in agriculture, livestock, fisheries, and minerals.

Concerning Afghanistan, the UK ambassador agreed that economic turmoil there will directly affect Pakistan, particularly Balochistan. Mr Bizenjo encouraged the international community to help revive Afghanistan’s economy.

The chief minister said certain groups were attempting to cause trouble at the behest of Pakistan’s adversaries, but security forces were preventing such attempts and punishing those involved.

He stated the separatist movement, which had killed hundreds of innocents, was diminishing.

“Guns and force can not solve problems. Issues can only be resolved through dialogue,” the chief minister announced.
