The Prime Minister emphasized Pakistan’s unwavering support for and dedication to the ECO’s agenda for regional growth and development during his remarks at the summit.

Additionally, he emphasized the significance of regional development and progress among the member nations, particularly fostering connectivity, commerce, investment, transportation infrastructure development, and sustainable economic growth.
