FPCCI delegation visits the UK

London:  A twenty-member trade delegation of Federation of Chamber of Commerce and Industries (FPCCI) visited UK from 15-19thOctober 2018. During this visit they went to Manchester, Edinburgh and London and held important business meetings.

While in London, the most important event was signing of MoU between FPCCI and British Chamber of Commerce (BCC). BCC, like FPCCI, is the apex chamber which has, under its umbrella, all the 53 mainstream British Business Chambers including London, Birmingham & Manchester Chambers. Pakistan High Commission played the pivotal role in creating this formal linkage between the apex business chambers of Pakistan and UK which will now enable our business community to access almost entire spectrum of British businesses through their association with BCC.

The High Commisison previously facilitated the creation of formal linkages of FPCCI, through MoUs, with various chambers like Pakistan Britain Business Council (PBBC), UK Pakistan Chamber of Commerce and Industries (UKPCCI) and Commonwealth Enterprise and Investment Council (CWEIC). Similarly, other Pakistani chambers were also facilitated in forging formal linkage with the British chambers.

This Commercial Wing of the High Commission facilitated FPCCI in attending the BCC annual flagship “International Trade Summit” in London in which they got the opportunity to interact with various British Chambers and their overseas affiliates. The keynote speaker during this event was Baroness Rona Fairhead, Minister of State for Trade and Export Promotion, DIT.

The Mission also helped organize a reception by UKPCCI to welcome the FPCCI delegates which provided an opportunity to the two platforms to create closer business relationships. FPCCI delegation also visited House of Commons and attended a business event at Asia House.

Establishment of formal linkages between key Pakistani and British Chambers will pave the way for exploring new business opportunities which will lead toward enhanced bilateral trade and investment activities between the two countries.
