LAHORE: British Prime Minister’s Trade Envoy for Pakistan and Member of Parliament (MP) Rehman Chishti said on Friday the UK would enhance its cooperation with the Punjab government in different sectors.

Chishti expressed these views during a meeting with Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif. The meeting discussed different matters of mutual interest including promotion of Pakistan-UK relations and expansion in bilateral cooperation in different sectors came under discussion. Chishti lauded Shehbaz over his performance in the energy sector.

Speaking on the occasion, Shehbaz said Pakistan and the UK enjoy historically important cordial relations and these relations have been further extended during the tenure of the PML-N government.

Different programmes for bringing improvements in the social sector were working successfully in partnership with UK’s Department for International Development (DFID). The bilateral relations between the two countries would be further expanded in future, he added.

He said a culture of transparency has been promoted by the Punjab government and records of public service have been set up by the PML-N government alongside. “Instead of making any claims, we have spent every movement for the betterment of the country,” the CM said.
