The Acting British High Commissioner, Mr Richard Crowder said:“This is my first visit to Sialkot, and I am delighted to be here in the trade hub of Pakistan.
“The photographs that are displayed today in this exhibition showcase the strong links that have existed over the last 70 years between the UK and Pakistan. Whether through the construction of girls’ schools through UK Aid or the various British Council programmes on education, the UK is a strong and committed partner to Pakistan.
“In Sialkot, our focus is on building on the strong trade links between our two countries. The UK recently increased our trade team in Pakistan and we look forward to working with businessmen from this city and across Pakistan to increase trade between our two countries.”
Over the coming months, the British High Commission’s ‘Shared History. Shared Future.’ photography exhibition will tour over ten cities in both the UK and Pakistan. Throughout the year, the British High Commission, in collaboration with the Pakistan High Commission in London, is organising several events and activities to mark 70 years of UK and Pakistan’s relations.
