Pakistan - UK Trade opportunities conference
Time: 09:00 - 15:00
Venue: Hyatt Regency Birmingham
Division: International Business Hub
Rawalpindi Chamber of Commerce and Industry has a legacy of providing diverse forums for the development and interaction of business community of Pakistan across the world. Businessmen utilize these forums to showcase their products and services and to expand the country's exports to the international markets.
Moreover these events and forums help to improve the bilateral trade relations between the two countries. These events serve as generator of economic growth and development but also help to achieve the overall economic development objective.
We have also successfully organized two international exhibitions in Manchester, UK in the year 2013 and 2014. The first exhibition was held under the banner of MADE IN PAKISTAN EXHIBITION from July 4-8, 2013 and the second exhibition was held with the name of INDEPENDENCE DAY CELEBRATIONS, PAKISTAN BUSINESS FESTIVALS from August 14-17, 2014. After the over whelming response of these two activities, now we are organizing "Pakistan-UK Trade Opportunities and Investment Conference" at Hyatt Regency Birmingham, UK on December 12, 2017.
Pakistan and UK have close ties and multidimensional relationships and are working on paving ways for enhancing the bilateral trade and business relations between the two countries in different sectors. Both Pakistan and the United Kingdom are members of the Commonwealth of Nations and the United Nations.
A Large number of Pakistanis are residing in United Kingdom. This resident population includes those who have been migrated to UK years before and have been settled there since long time, and are known as British Pakistanis. However, a large number of Pakistanis are also settled there and are either employed or self-employed. These resident Pakistanis are considered as one of the largest overseas Pakistani communities and have the high levels of home ownership in UK. These citizens also have diverse contributions and influence on British society in the field of business, politics, culture, economy and sports.
Significant number of Pakistanis are also working in the food, transport, steel & textiles industry and retail sector or are running their family businesses. The foreign remittances made by these Pakistanis to their home land are the largest in volume.
Keeping in view the significant progress that has been made by Pakistanis in the business growth and the increase in the volume of foreign remittances, we are very optimistic to provide an interactive platform to all these businessmen to establish a direct interaction with their mother land to enhance business ties between Pakistan and UK. Both countries have a wide scope to strengthen their cooperation in the areas of trade, science, economy, education and bilateral investment.
