Under the terms of the MoU, the business has promised to invest $500 million in a variety of projects. A formal agreement, however, will be inked at a later date.

“We recently signed a series of memorandums of understanding for $1.4 billion – the project’s first major foreign investment pledge.” The largest of the MoUs is for $500 million, under which the company will develop several schemes connected to echo systems, innovation cities, and so on,” Ruda CEO said on Sunday.

“All Memorandums of Understanding were recently signed at the Dubai Expo-2020, which is currently underway. “I believe it demonstrates foreign investors’ confidence in Pakistan,” he added.
