Germany keen for better trade, commerce ties with Pakistan

Karachi: Germany was totally committed on promoting trade and commerce cooperation with Pakistan, says German Ambassador to Pakistan Dr Michael Koch.

Pakistan is a vast, diverse country, and Karachi it’s most important city that possesses dynamics different to rest of the country. But foreigners, particularly Europeans who don’t know much about Pakistan, have different perceptions that are not wholly in consonance with reality, he said at farewell reception hosted for departing German Consul General in Karachi Dr Christian Brecht on completion of his tenure.

Dr Brecht said Karachi had a very important role to play in Pakistan’s economy and development. He said as a friend of Karachi and Pakistan, it pained him greatly to see current situation prevailing in the country and hoped these hurdles would be overcome soon.

He said Karachi occupied very special place for the country and was lynchpin in its trade and economy with very important role. With this in mind Pakistan German Business Council opened a new office to facilitate two-way interaction.
