London (October 10, 2017) : London Mayor Sadiq Khan will visit Pakistan later this year as part of his trade mission to benefit the inhabitants of his city by providing investment, jobs, cultural and technological exchange with London, the London government issued a press release on Tuesday.
While talking about his upcoming visit to Pakistan, London Mayor Sadiq Khan said as someone whose grandparents were born in India and whose parents moved to London from Pakistan, I feel a deep affinity for the subcontinent.
He will visit Lahore, Islamabad and Karachi to meet politicians and members of business community to boost ties with the country. Sadiq will be accompanied by a delegation of UK business leaders.
The message that London government wants to send to South Asia is that they are open for non-immigrants who want to visit, study or work in the country’s capital.
He will support the cause of economic, cultural and technological exchange for mutual gains and attract entrepreneurs and investors from Pakistan as well as India. The trip to South Asia aims at strengthening trade and investment links as well as promoting cultural exchange.
