It seems his own presence in Pakistan is the least of President Zardari's priorities. His visit to China accompanied by the chairman Board of Investment and former Advisor on Petroleum Dr Asim is intriguing to say the least. Even more intriguingly, the presidential contingent has not a single technical expert qualified in hydel power although an MoU on the subject was due to be signed in Zhejiang. President Zardari's quarterly visits to China are unique, as he has neither visited Beijing nor met the Chinese President formally as yet. Is this not somewhat awkward that the President is deeply involved in business deals, a job that should be assigned to some minister or technocrat? -ABRAR HUSSAIN, Faisalabad, via e-mail, August 24.
