According to the Pakistani journalist, in the Investor Summit that was held between September 4 to September 8 in Azerbaijan, belly dancers from Pakistan were the main attraction to lure investors into investing money into Pakistan and revive its collapsing economy.
The video shared by Gul shows how belly dancers were used to luring the investors in the summit titled ‘Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Investment Conference’.
As soon as Gul shared the video on Twitter, soon it became viral among netizens and Twitteratis started taking potshots at Pakistan and it’s debilitating economy for stooping down to such levels to draw investments in their country.
One Twitter user quipped that it is good that at least belly dancers are used or else PM Imran Khan would have had to dance to keep the investments flowing in.
Atleast bechare PM Imran Khan ko MUJRA nahin karna pada ??

Others asked whether it is the idea of ‘Naya Pakistan’ that PM Imran Khan and his party have been telling about.
@fawadchaudhry @ImranKhanPTI @OfficialDGISPR what a shame, new Pakistan has to stoop to such shameful tactics. Instead of inviting industry leaders n prominent speakers you guys resorted to cheap measures. Nange bhikariyon ka Bheekh maangne ka naya tareeka 🙂

Pakistani users also expressed their embarrassment over the cheap tactics.

Cash-strapped Pakistan has been in the throes of its worst economic crisis with no tangible and effective solution in its sight to rescue itself from the deepening financial calamity. The annual fiscal deficit of Pakistan rose to the highest in the last three decades at 8.9 per cent for the financial year 2018-19. The IMF review team which was supposed to visit Pakistan in November has now decided to send an SOS(Save our Soul) mission to Pakistan in mid-September to assess the widening fiscal deficit.
