ISLAMABAD: Local and foreign investors can invest in Pakistan’s housing sector, particularly in the rehabilitation of internally displaced persons, President Asif Zardari said on Wednesday.

He was talking to delegates of the Gulf General Investment Company (GGICO) – led by its Chairman Abdullah Juma Al-Sari at the Presidency.

Zardari said the government had launched a housing scheme for the poor, the general public and government employees.

He said the country’s investment policy aimed at encouraging foreign investment through fair treatment of both local and foreign investors.

Al-Sari said the company was interested in investing in the housing sector of Pakistan, particularly the pre-fabricated housing units for the displaced people and affordable housing in the major cities.
