Message of the Chairman
“Pakistan lies at the center of global economy; we have the top economic giants in our neighbors that include China, Russia, India and Iran. We have access to top emerging markets of Gulf, Asia and Central Asia. Soon, we are connecting China with rest of the world through Energy and Trade Corridor of CPEC.
This makes Pakistan a very important global economic destination. We are world leader in Textile, Cotton and Sports Industries. We have all the resources that an economy would ever need.
I am honored to represent Pakistan Trade and Entrepreneurship Development Organisation (PTEDO) – Pakistan’s only and most vital Trade and Entrepreneurship Development Organization owned by Industry, Academia, Public and Civil Society. I hereby thank Executive Council for electing me as Chairman – PTEDO for 2018.
With the appointment of a new-look Executive Committee at the recent AGM 2018, my team and I are excited to continue to serve you from now into 2018 and beyond. We hope to provide a platform for your business development and networking needs in Pakistan and rest of the world, as well as to enhance your personal development via our learning events. Our aim is to Engage, Enrich and Enable all PTEDO members.
In the coming year, we have initiated a number of novel initiatives, chief of which is the Asian Business Councils Alliance which would expand member networking opportunities across a number of other Asian business councils, as well as allowing PTEDO members the chance to enjoy a wider range of benefits which are shared across participating business councils. We hope that this bold initiative will enable our members in exploring new trade and business opportunities with our Asian neighbors.
We will also look to continue our signature Knowledge Series events via seminars, forums and panel discussions, which will allow PTEDO members to Enrich and develop themselves both professionally and personally. After all, we believe that learning is a lifelong process and nobody is too old to learn something new!
Last but not least, we want to hear more from you and we are constantly looking to engage our members more actively, whether via our revamped website (www.ptedo.com), member satisfaction surveys, social media channels or casual events such as our classic sun downers. We encourage you to follow us on all our communication tools so that you do not miss out on our events. More importantly, we hope to hear your feedback on what you hope for us to do in order to serve you and the Pakistani International business community better.
