RIYADH: Prime Minister Imran Khan, who is in Saudi Arabia at the invitation of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz, is set to attend the Middle East Green Initiative (MGI) Summit in Riyadh on Monday.

The premier is joined by a high-level delegation, including Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi, Energy Minister Hammad Azhar and Special Assistant for Environment Malik Amin Aslam on the second leg of his three-day official visit to the Kingdom.

The MGI summit is a brainchild of Prince Mohammed bin Salman and is a first of its kind in the Middle East region.

At the event, PM Imran will share his perspective on the challenges faced by the developing countries due to climate change, said Radio Pakistan.

He will also highlight Pakistan’s experience of launching nature-based solutions to address environmental challenges.

During his stay in Riyadh, the premier will have bilateral interactions with top Saudi leadership, with a particular focus on advancing economic and trade relations, creating more opportunities for the Pakistani workforce and the welfare of the Pakistanis in the Kingdom.

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

PM Imran will also participate in an event aimed at promoting investment in Pakistan. He will also interact with leading investors and businessmen from Saudi Arabia and the Pakistani diaspora in the Kingdom.

“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. Prime Minister 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 Foreign Office (FO) had said in a statement issued last week.
