King Salman bin Abdel Aziz has especially invited Imran Khan to attend the conference.

The conference , termed "Davos in the desert", will host leading businesspersons, investors, corporate giants, representatives of hi-tech industry and major media outlets at one platform, the Foreign Office said in a press release.

PM Imran’s participation on the first day of the conference is aimed at projecting Pakistan's economic and investment potential as well as its vision for the next five years, the statement added.

The conference provides an opportunity to interact with important business leaders who are interested in investing in Pakistan, the press release stated.

The premier will also call on King Salman and Crown Prince Muhammad Bin Salman to discuss matters of mutual interest.

Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi and Finance Minister Asad and Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry are accompanying the premier during his visit.

The FII conference is now an annual feature in Saudi Arabia. The first FII was held last year, with participation of 3,800 people from 90 countries. This year's conference is also likely to attract participation from a large number of leading figures.
