Prime Minister Imran Khan will leave for Saudi Arabia on Saturday on a three-day official visit to attend the launch ceremony of the “Middle East Green Initiative (MGI) Summit”, being held here in the Saudi capital.

The prime minister visiting the Kingdom to attend the Summit, at the invitation of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz, will be accompanied by a high-level delegation, including the foreign minister and other members of the Cabinet.

At the MGI Summit, the prime minister will share his perspective on the challenges faced by developing countries due to climate change.

He will also highlight Pakistan’s experience of launching nature-based solutions to address the environmental challenges, Foreign Office said in a statement issued on Friday.

The MGI Summit, the first of its kind in the Middle East Region, is being held at the initiative of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz.

It may be recalled “Green Saudi Arabia” and “Green Middle East” initiatives were launched by the Crown Prince in March 2021 aimed at protecting the nature and planet.

PM Khan welcomed these two initiatives and offered to share experiences and lessons from Pakistan’s “Clean and Green Pakistan” and Prime Minister’s “10 billion Tree Tsunami.”

The premier will have bilateral interaction with the Saudi leadership, with a particular focus on advancing economic and trade relations; creating more opportunities for the Pakistani workforce; and the welfare of the Pakistani Diaspora in the Kingdom.

The two sides will also exchange views on regional and international issues of mutual interest.

During the visit, the prime minister will also participate in an event on the promotion of investment in Pakistan and interact with leading investors and businessmen from Saudi Arabia and Pakistani Diaspora in the Kingdom.
