Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday has assured the Turkish business community that their investments will be fully protected in Pakistan.

Addressing business community in Ankara today, he said the process has been started to remove impediments in the way of investment in the country. He said we have set up an office at the PM Secretariat to make it easier for the investors to invest in Pakistan.
