He urged Saudi and Pakistani businessmen and women to make use of the huge investment opportunities in both countries. \"We have to work together to mobilize our untapped potentials in various sectors including trade, investment and information technology for the welfare and progress of people in our countries,\" the Saudi minister said. He said Saudi and Pakistan businessmen could play a big role in accelerating the economic progress of their countries by entering into joint ventures in vital sectors, making use of incentives offered by governments. Al-Rabiah underscored the deep-rooted relations between Saudi Arabia and Pakistan and thanked Islamabad for hosting the commission\'s 9th meeting.
