This figure helps in understand the need for investing in the Saudi’s construction sector. Since the construction sector contracted in the previous financial year by almost 2 percent, the country is gearing up to expand it now and thus investing in this sector at this point of time can be really profitable.

Opportunities for investment in health care center:

One of the main aspects the ambitious and optimistic Saudi Vision 2030 which was launched last year is the "PPPs" which stand for the Public-Private Partnerships. Under this, the public entities of the Saudi government will get investments from the private sector which includes foreign investments as well.

Saudi Arab Is Interested In China Pakistan Economic Corridor

A few days back, a representative from Saudi Arab reached Pakistan and informed that they are interested in CPEC. Representatives have claimed that Saudi Arab would be taking part in this super project. This tremendous project is taking place in Gwadar and Saudi Arab will contribute and participate by doing some investments. It was being said that it is a kind gesture which we want to give to the people of Pakistan who have done valuable services for the progress of kingdom. Undoubtedly, this is true because almost two million Pakistanis are engaged in the development and the progress of the kingdom.

Pakistan-China Friendship:

The friendship bond between Pakistan and China is very strong. These two countries are known to have the strongest friendship ties. China spent billions of dollars for the project of China Pakistan economic corridor. The project will allow the establishment of a connection between Kashgar and Gwadar. Moreover, it is also the purpose to strengthen the economic ties of both the countries. Related Post: How to register a company in Pakistan?

The project was started under the china’s OBOR project which is also known as one belt one road. Such activities have brought the two allies very close to each other. The ambassador also stated that both the countries Pakistan and China will exchange such programs which are educational and cultural too.

Saudi Arab being the part of the project:

Pakistan’s newly elected president has also visited Saudi Arab and appreciated the vision of 2030. Moreover, he has also given assurance of full collaboration from his side. The country is very eager to boost up the relations with Saudi Arab.

link road from china to pakistan to saudi arabia

However, there are many other countries that are really not happy with this decision. Let’s take the example of India as road summit is being boycotted as a gesture of opposition. This clearly reflects that India is against this decision. On the other hand, United States is making good relations with India. The reason is to minimize the economy of China and to emerge itself as a great power. When it comes to Iran, Saudi Arab has no good relations with Iran. Therefore a wave of disturbance also took place in Iran.

Iran and Saudi Arabia issue:

As it is mentioned above that Iran and Saudi Arab have some unresolved issues, therefore, doing investments in CPEC is causing disturbance for Iran. They do not want Saudi Arab to invest in this project of China Pakistan economic corridor.

Committees for guidance:

Well despite all such kind of issues Saudi Arab is all set to make developments. There are many committees formed. These committees will not only provide guidance for cooperation but also coordinate to provide them with a right direction. The field where cooperation is needed is not only equipment but also culture, security, trade, investment & finance too. All these things are the proof of the interest that Saudi Arab is taking in CPEC.

We hope this project to be a successful one because the coordination between countries is very strong. Moreover, Saudi Arab is agreed to contribute at the best level. No doubt it’s a very valuable project. Related Post: Top innovative ideas for doing small scal business in Pakistan.

And if you go for the LTE feature than take note that the US carriers are going to charge you extra $10 per month for using this feature. The big 42mm model will cost you $359 and $429 having the same options for £359 and £429. Both of these watches obviously gives you a lot more when you go for leather, Hermes models or Edition.

Apple 4K TV supporting HDR movies and UltraHD is $179 (£179) with a built-in storage of 32GB and $199 (£199) for 64GB. You don’t need to worry about the content on its arrival at 22nd September, at least in US because Apple already has started to release movies with Dolby Vision HDR and 4K.

As stated earlier, pre-orders for iPhone X aren’t going live till the 27th of October with scheduled shipping at 3rd of November. Model featuring 5.8 inches 2436 x 1125 OLED screen, and a Face ID rather than touch costs you $999 and $1149 for 64GB and 256GB. And if you plan to get this model than you need to be ready to place an order as soon as they go on pre-order because rumors signals for short supply of OLED panels.

Whether you go for tried and true and faster iPhone 8 or 8 Plus or the novel iPhone X with weird new cutouts, OLED screen and minimal bezels let us know all in the comments below.

Noor Ul Ain Aftab: Motivational story of a Pakistani Girl for CSS students


Nothing is impossible if you believe yourself; The story of a brave Girl:

This story is written by someone i am just publishing it to motivate you so read now........

I got married when I was 18 years old and did bachelors after my marriage and got 2nd position in it, but due to family commitments, I had to discontinue my studies. But amidst all the chores, deep inside, a voice would keep calling, "You are meant to do more". Having ignored this voice for too long, I enrolled myself in Masters program in AIOU and started teaching as soon as my children started going to school. 

My husband, seeing the efforts I would put in every small assignment, urged me to go for CSS. With two demanding children and sick mother in law to attend to, along with teaching O levels and studying for last semester of Masters. 

I set off for preparing for CSS. I had the untiring support of my husband who stayed by my side till the end. It was his strength that kept me motivated. 

But the moment of glory came with the moment of grief. My husband passed away in an accident a week before my CSS result came out. I had been allocated but the person who had made it possible wasn't there to celebrate it with me. I feel as if he knew all along that he was going to go. That all this while he was trying to help equip me with everything that I would need when he was gone. And now I want call out to him with pride and say "We did it"! I'm thankful to God for choosing me for a partner like him and a privilege like civil service, I resolve to live up to both of these blessings. Meet Noor Ul Ain Aftab, 44th Common.

Yes, according to some media sources these orders will be implemented next year in June. Saudi leaders are very hopeful regarding there this decision. They believe that women were spending a lot of money and salaries for paying male drivers in order to go somewhere. Therefore, now this step will make the economy strong and we will see the increase in it because of women’s contribution in the workplace.

Fawziah al-Bakr, who is a university professor in Saudi Arab and was among the 47 ladies who protested when women were banned to drive in the year of 1990, said that it is really amazing. Women were seeking their right to drive when for the first time they got arrested while driving in Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arab. The women suffered because of this ban and some of them also lost their jobs after getting arrested. Moreover, she added that we have been waiting for a very long time and now at last it arrived.

People used to give reasons for the ban of Saudi women to drive. Some used to say that it is something completely against the Saudi families while others say it is not good for female to drive. Related Post:  MOI Absher registration process and benefits.
