Pakistan PM commits investment in Karachi port to boost trade

Karachi is Pakistan's major maritime link to the outside world and handles over 60 percent of the country's imports and almost all of its exports.

    Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan has unveiled a billion-dollar investment programme to improve infrastructure in the country's most important port city, Karachi.

    Karachi is an economic hub and handles more than half of Pakistan's imported goods.
