Islamabad: Mr. Alexander Lukin, the General Director of Specialized Construction Company of Russia, visited Mr. Saleem H. Mandviwalla, Minister of State/Chairman Board of Investment. He was invited by Board of Investment to Pakistan to discuss the available infrastructure projects in Pakistan. He offered to do projects on barter basis which Pakistan has never done with any other country.
Mr. Mandviwalla presented all the available projects which could be worked upon. He informed the Director that the company should first identify a project and then a joint venture should be created and implemented together. He was also shown different road and mining projects.
Mr Alexander Lukin offered to do Karachi to Port Qasim Elevated Expressway and Hassan Abdal-Mansehra expressway which is more than 100km.
The Chairman further informed him that the project should be such which is self-sustaining and generates its own revenue or paid by any donor. He further told that the labour and services were easily available in Pakistan, which is a benefit for the interested companies.
Mr. Alexander Lukin after going through the projects, informed that he would discuss and then inform upon a project soon.
