KARACHI: The U.S. Ambassador to Pakistan Donald Blome has inaugurated the second Investment Roadshow, supported by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). Fourteen innovative companies in the clean technology sector showcased their work at the roadshow, promoting private sector investment in sustainable and viable clean energy solutions.

Organized by the USAID-funded Pakistan Private Sector Energy (PPSE) Project, the event sought to catalyze investment in commercially viable clean energy projects and help businesses access critical financing. Since its inception, PPSE has mobilized over $30 million for projects focused on clean energy, e-mobility, and energy efficiency.

“Expanding clean energy requires a supportive environment, which is why the United States continues to work with Pakistan on developing a stronger investment climate,” said Ambassador Donald Blome, adding that “investing in clean energy and low-carbon technologies is crucial for Pakistan to achieve its renewable energy goals.”

We are grateful to the organizers for uniting the government, private sector and financiers to highlight the innovative work the innovative work companies in Pakistan are doing to reduce emissions.”
