Islamabad: Pakistan and Saudi Arabia are likely to sign memoranda of understanding (MoU) worth more than $10 billion this month, the media reported on Thursday.The announcement was made at the second meeting on ease of doing business (EoDB) presided over by Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday.

"According to a survey, 65 per cent of the investments will take place in the country's commercial hub Karachi and 35 per cent in Lahore," he added.The $10 billion investment will be in addition to the $6 billion bailout package given by Riyadh to Islamabad during Khan's visit to Saudi Arabia in October 2018. Similarly, Pakistan will also sign MoUs with China, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Malaysia over the next two months.
