(MENAFN - Gulf Times) As the second biggest presence at the sixth edition of Cityscape Qatar, construction giants from #Pakistan
made it count with big time investment opportunities.
Opened by Ambassador Shahzad Ahmed on Day One, the dedicated #Pakistan
Pavilion was the scene of hectic exploration from hordes of expatriate Pakistanis, and both inquisitive locals and foreigners wanting to be acquainted with investment opportunities in what promises to be one of the world's standout economic regions, especially with the coveted US46 billion #China
Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) taking root.
Major league players like the Defence Housing Authority (DHA) and premier marketing and construction houses like Star Marketing and Fast Marketing led the show with an array of dream builders. Athar Marketing Network, DHA Bahawalpur, DHA Multan and DHA Peshawar, Buch Villas Multan, Gulistan Marketing combined to offer more than 50 projects from #Pakistan
at the showpiece event.
Talking to Community, Qamar Choudhry, CEO of Mass Com Solutions — the Exclusive Partner of #Pakistan
Property Pavilion at Cityscape #Qatar
— said a lot of work went into its organisation, singling out a survey that was primed for expatriate Pakistanis who aspire for easier access and reliability in terms of investment.
'We conducted a survey some time back to find out what were the problems that expat Pakistanis faced particularly in the area of housing; some of the outstanding issues included the lack of time and requisite knowledge of where, when and how to invest. We came to the conclusion that the best solution lay in bringing the most renowned real estate entities under one roof. Hence the idea of this pavilion at the Cityscape Qatar, he said.
'We have an exclusive arrangement with Cityscape #Qatar
and as part of our endeavour to offer the best possible investment opportunities, we invited household names back home. With #Pakistan
assuming a high profile as an economic destination, especially with the launch of the CPEC, we were keen to respond to the interest of foreign investors. We've already done a road show in Abu Dhabi and Dubai before coming here, Choudhry noted.
'There were more than 50 projects here, which meant people (investors) had a decent spread to choose from. And then, there were multiple options in all forms and range; be they commercial and residential plots, apartments, shops, farm houses, villas and homes, even medical facilities, Choudhry said.
Similar property shows have already been conducted in Britain and the US, with more GCC countries and #Australia
next in line.
