ISLAMABAD: The Pak-Saudi Business Conference, which was scheduled to be held on February 17, 2019 has been postponed, Prime Minister’s office said.
The invitations had been dispatched for participation in B2B meetings with Saudi businessmen, accompanying Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
However, the Prince’s visit got delayed by a day, hence the Pak-Saudi Business Conference was postponed. No new schedule was announced in this regard.
Prince Mohammad will now visit Pakistan with a reduced number of business officials.

The prince will also travel to neighboring India amid heightened tension between Islamabad and New Delhi over this week’s attack on a paramilitary convoy in Indian occupied Kashmir.
Last year, Pakistan voiced its support for the prince when he faced international outrage following the killing of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi by Saudi agents.
The kingdom quickly signed an agreement for a $6 billion assistance package after ImranImran attended an investment conference in October that saw a wave of cancellations linked to the Khashoggi killing.[the_ad id=”32940″]
