British envoy discusses ways to boost trade links with Pakistan


ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: British High Commissioner to Pakistan Thomas Drew CMG Tuesday discussed ways with representatives of Islamabad Chambers of Commerce and Industry (ICCI) to boost existing trade links between the two countries.

He was talking to an ICCI delegation led by its President Atif Ikram Sheikh here at his residence.

“These are exciting times for Pakistan and for our trade relationship.

Increased levels of security, the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) projects and growing UK-Pakistan business links are all laying the foundations for a transformation within Pakistan’s business sector. This will be the cornerstone for economic growth across the country,” said Thomas in his remarks on the occasion, according to a statement of the British High Commission here.

He said strengthening the trade and investment ties between the UK and Pakistan “is one of my top priorities.”

“During my short time in Pakistan, I have already seen good examples from Karachi to Islamabad of British investment in a variety of sectors.”

Thomas said the business relationship between the UK and Pakistan was important to the prosperity of both our countries.

“I want it to continue to grow. There are already a large number of British companies operating in Pakistan today, with many more working here through Pakistani agents and distributors. Part of my role is to stimulate more business in both directions. The newly launched British Business Centre will be a great asset in doing so.”
