Prime Minister Imran Khan will depart on a three-day visit to Saudi Arabia today (Saturday) to attend the launching ceremony of the “Middle East Green Initiative Summit” in Riyadh.
A high-level delegation, including the foreign minister and other members of the federal cabinet, will accompany the Prime Minister during the visit.
At the MGI Summit, Imran Khan will share his perspective on the challenges faced by the developing countries due to climate change. He will also highlight Pakistan s experience of launching nature-based solutions to address the environmental challenges.
The MGI Summit is being held at the initiative of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz. The event is the first of its kind in the Middle East.
It may be recalled “Green Saudi Arabia” and “Green Middle East” initiatives were launched by the Crown Prince in March this year aimed at protecting the nature and planet.
PM Imran 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 PM will have bilateral interaction with the Saudi leadership, with particular focus on advancing economic and trade relations, creating more opportunities for Pakistani workforce, and welfare of Pakistani Diaspora in the Kingdom.
