    When asked about Malaysian investment in Pakistan he said that Malaysian companies were very keen to invest in different sectors of Pakistan but they were reluctant due to security situation in the country.

    Now, Malaysian investors may invest in Pakistan again as the security situation has improved owing to the efforts of the government especially after the success of the operation Zarb-e-Azb against terrorists, the High Commissioner observed.

    He said that Malaysian investors were interested to invest in various sectors especially in energy sector, oil and gas, mining, infrastructure and even in plantation of palm oil trees in the coastal areas of Pakistan through joint ventures.

    Responding to a question that what should be the strategy of Pakistan to attract foreign investment, he said the government of Pakistan should provide proper infrastructure, good banking system besides one window services to international companies to attract them for investment. ?
    Continuing, he said that many Malaysian and other international companies were interested to invest in various projects in Gwadar but could not come due to non-availability of proper infrastructure and facilities.

    When asked about the recently announced China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), the High Commissioner said that, "Pakistan is a blessed country with an important strategic position and it should take maximum advantage from this position for the development of the country and betterment of the nation through economic revolution".

    "We are happy over the announcement of CPEC with a total volume of investment more than US dollars 40 billion and this project will attract multi billion dollars further investment to Pakistan as it is being considered one of the biggest indicator for the better economic future of Pakistan", he commented.

    "CPEC will change the entire economy of Pakistan and it will be a huge project which will open many windows of development in Pakistan. It will not only be beneficial for Pakistan and China but for the entire region as well as whole Asia", he maintained.

    The High Commissioner also appreciated efforts of Pakistan for bringing peace in Afghanistan and lauded its role for holding Heart of Asia Conference. He hoped there would be a permanent peace and stability in Afghanistan due to the efforts of international countries especially neighbouring countries.

    Pakistan should also focus on enhancing its trade relations with ASEAN countries as there was a great scope of exporting Pakistani goods especially rice beside other items to ASEAN countries, the High Commissioner suggested.

    Malaysia was the largest importer of rice and mangoes from Pakistan he said, adding, and, was focusing on some other items like meat and other halal foods.
    Regarding high level visits between the two countries, he said invitations had already been exchanged at Prime Ministers' level and expected it would be materialised by the first half of next year.

    It would be a good move and a great PR for PAF and JF-17 to engage Malaysian Su-30MKM in a limited demo/exercise to show our capabilities. Such demo's should be conducted in every country that shows interest in the JFT.

    If this deal goes through, then Malaysia would be the second buyer. The first buyer has still not been revealed.

    It takes a while, sometimes a few years, before the identities are disclosed in such deals.

    Jordan was offered a small batch of JFT in a barter deal for F-16's and spares. Not sure if the deal will materialise in near future.

    Negotiations with Tajikistan started last year soon after they renewed the lease of AFB Farkhor to India. Due to political sensitivity the deal was kept secret and is being brokered by China, not Pakistan.
    China believes that India is using the military bases to train ETIM and Uyghur terrorists and wants to keep an eye on their activities by selling the JFT and station technical staff in Tajikistan. If the deal goes through, we will export 24 jets to Dushanbe.

    Iran is negotiating with China to set up an assembly line for upto 150 J-10's in Teheran. She needs to replace some 400+ ageing aircrats including the F-5 and F-14's. Their own derivative of the F-5 the Saiqa is not capable enough to replace the entire fleet. JFT would be a great addition.

    Malaysia mulls options to buy JF-17 Thunder

    ISLAMABAD:
    A top Malaysian official in Pakistan indicated on Sunday that his country is mulling options to buy Joint Fighter-17 (JF-17) Thunder multi-role fighters from Islamabad.

    “This [JF-17] jet fighter is considered an excellent production of Pakistan in the defence sector and decision about the number [of purchases] would be taken very soon by the Malaysian government,” High Commissioner of Malaysia to Pakistan Dato Dr Hasrul Sani bin Mujtabar said in a media interview.

    ‘JF-17 thunder fighter has capability to compete with any modern fighter jet’

    Pakistan and Malaysia, he said, are enjoying excellent relations in the defence sector as a result of Joint Committee on Defence of both the countries which play role as an active forum.

    Focusing on the multibillion-dollar China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project, he said Pakistan is a blessed country with an important strategic position and it should take maximum advantage from this position for the development of the country and betterment of the nation through economic revolution.

    “We are happy over the announcement of CPEC with a total volume of investment more than $40 billion and this project will attract multibillion dollars further investment to Pakistan as it is being considered one of the biggest indicators for the better economic future of Pakistan,” Dr Hasrul Sani added.

    He went on to say that CPEC will change the entire economy of Pakistan and it will be a huge project which will open many windows of development in the country. “It is not only beneficial to Pakistan and China but also for the entire region.”

    Talking about Pakistan as a trade partner, the high commissioner said: “Pakistan is one of the largest trade partners of Malaysia with a total trade volume of more than $2 billion and that could be enhanced further in the times to come.”
