The first and the largest Pakistan Bahrain Business Opportunities Conference being organized by Pakistan Embassy in the Kingdom of Bahrain will be co-chaired by Pakistani and Bahraini Commerce Ministers and a large number of businessmen and investors from Bahrain, and other Gulf countries are expected to attend the conference being organized on September 25, 2016.
Speaking about the conference, Ambassador of Pakistan, Javed Malik on Friday said, "The participation of both ministers sends a very positive signal to the business community in both countries that the government is fully supportive of expanding the business and trade relations between our people and our governments."
Ambassador Javed Malik further stated the Business to Business session will be jointly chaired by the Presidents of the Federation of Chambers of Commerce of both countries and this is also a very welcome step for the business communities to enhance the level of their interaction, and work closely with each other in taking forward the economic ties between their countries.
While highlighting Pakistan's trade potential Ambassador Javed Malik said, "Being a large agricultural economy, we have vast and fertile lands and Pakistan can be a 'green basket" for Bahrain and the GCC region. Our fruits, vegetables, livestock and agro-based products are finest in the world. In my meetings with the BCCI and Bahraini businessmen, I understand that there are many opportunities in this regard and we would be keen to take this further during the meetings.
