Siemens, Volkswagen keen to vest in Pakistan's IT, auto sectors

German Ambassador to Pakistan Martin Kobler on Friday.

"German giants like Volkswagen and Siemens have shown their desire to invest in Pakistan," he said during a meeting with Special Assistant Prime Minister of Overseas Pakistanis and Human Resource Developers Zulfikar Abbas Bukhari, a press release said.

The German envoy, who called on Bukhari in Islamabad, discussed matters pertaining to bilateral interests with a special focus on importing Pakistani manpower by creating more work opportunities in Germany.

The two also discussed the impact of Brexit and the dynamics of the labor market in post-Brexit Germany. The ambassador said that there is an emerging need for mechatronics experts in German industries which would eventually prompt the requirement for mechatronics experts to be brought in from across the globe.

"German legislatures will pass laws for immigrants in March next year for the purpose," the press release added.

Bukhari assured Kobler of Pakistan's interests in providing the required technical manpower to Germany on a priority basis and the two decided to evolve a mechanism for the systematic export of Pakistani manpower to Germany.
