Several South Korean companies in Pakistan are facing the possibility of shutdown as they struggle with a financial crisis caused by delays in payments from the Pakistani government. According to reports, these companies have invested heavily in the country and have been operating for several years.
The companies are reportedly involved in various industries including power plants, construction, and infrastructure. They have been facing difficulties in sustaining their operations due to a lack of funds, which has resulted in delays in paying salaries to their employees.
The Korean companies have appealed to the Pakistani government to address the issue and ensure that they receive their outstanding payments. They have also requested the government to facilitate the process of repatriating their invested capital.
The Pakistani government has acknowledged the situation and assured the companies that it is taking steps to resolve the issue. However, the companies have expressed their concerns that if the situation persists, they may have to shut down their operations in the country, leading to a loss of jobs for their employees. The South Korean embassy in Pakistan has also been informed of the issue and is reportedly working closely with the Pakistani government to find a solution to the financial crisis faced by the Korean companies in the country.
