Ambassador of Pakistan to the United States Masood Khan said on Saturday that business-to-business (B2B) ties between the US and Pakistan were increasing especially in the technology sector.

“The United States is the largest export market for Pakistan and in the years to come bilateral trade is poised to grow,” said the ambassador during a conversation with former US ambassador and CEO of Meridian International Center, Stuart Holliday.

“The current phase of Pak-US relations is centred on enhancing economic cooperation. In recent high-level visits, we have prioritised trade, agriculture, businesses, technology, climate change, green energy, disaster preparedness, environment, health and people-to-people exchanges,” said Masood.

Meridian International Centre is a non-partisan institution that seeks to advance global security and prosperity through effective leadership and diplomacy. It creates global leadership exchange and education programmes, partnerships and initiatives that strengthen international cooperation on key issues i.e., security, energy and the environment, economic development, entrepreneurship, global health and culture.

Observing that several delegations, comprising of Pakistani students, professionals and experts, had visited the United States these past few years he said, “In the long run, they will build bridges between Pakistan and the US,” said the Pakistani envoy ambassador, adding that Pakistan would also like to welcome more US students, academics and businesspersons visiting the country.
