British businesses have been encouraged to invest in Pakistan.


British businesses have been encouraged to invest in Pakistan, as part of an ongoing programme of events run by the UK government to highlight new opportunities here.

The webinar ‘Doing Business in Pakistan’ held on the 29th of April, brought together three exceptional panellists who have welcomed the support offered by the UK’s Department for International Trade.

Ann Francke, Chief Executive of the Chartered Management Institute; Ash Ramzan, Principal Consultant at Woodley BioReg Limited; and Jag Grewal, Commercial Director, at Omega Diagnostic, all wanted to share their experiences and inspire those who are looking for their next challenge.
Olivia Campbell, the UK’s Deputy Director for Trade in Pakistan and Chair of the Panel, said:
“Pakistan is an exciting market that provides lots of potential for the UK. We have almost 200 UK firms doing business in Pakistan, and this number is growing every year. By sharing the experience of UK businesses who have had success in this market, we want to encourage more British firms to consider Pakistan as their partner of choice.”
The webinar ended with a Q&A session discussing the challenges one faces to enter the Pakistani market and all the DIT support available to counter these.
