Nasir Hussain Shah also visited EPZA Stall. An EPZA officer briefed him about the purpose of launch of the KEPZ Phase-III extension and provision of promotional facilities to investors of the Karachi Export Processing Zone. He appreciated efforts of the EPZA to increase exports and earn foreign exchange as well as help build a good image of Pakistan in the international market.
