November 10th, 2016
Honorable Khurram Dastagir Khan, Federal Minister for Commerce,
Dear colleagues and friends,
Queridos amigos de la comunidad española,
2016 marks the 65th anniversary of the establishment of our diplomatic relations.
On this significant occasion, let me convey to you a few messages on the current situation and the future of our bilateral relations:
First message: Our relations are on a positive path.
Last June, Foreign Secretary, Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry, went to Spain for the third round of the annual bilateral consultations, a mechanism which has brought us closer.
Our bilateral trade has more than doubled in the last five years, from less than 500 million US dollars in 2010 to more than 1.1 billion dollars in 2015. At the same time, Spain has become the seventh destination of Pakistani exports in the world.
If this expanding pattern continues, we will likely break a new record in our trade figures by the end of this year
Second message: One of our main tasks has been to encourage Spanish companies and investors to come to Pakistan. Our efforts are paying off, facilitated by the tangible improvement of both the security situation and the business climate in Pakistan
Spanish companies are responding to the challenge not only by doing good business but also by transferring technology to their Pakistani counterparts.
Third message: There is an enormous potential to work together in other fields such as tourism, since Spain is the second country in the world in terms of tourism revenue and the third in the number of visitors.
At the same time, more than 100.000 Pakistanis live and work in Spain. They are part of our lives and increasingly connect our two societies. Spain is a welcoming country not only as a tourist destination but also as home.
Last message: Spanish language is our most important asset. This year we have been celebrating the 400th anniversary of Miguel de Cervantes, the author of Don Quixote. A series of events, public readings and flamenco performances have been organized, providing us an opportunity to be more in touch with the situation of Spanish language and culture in Pakistan.
I want to express my sincere appreciation to the all the companies that you see on the screen for sponsoring this event and to the Serena Hotel for their great support.
Mujhay moka dein kay,
mein ikhtetam kar sakoun is umeed say
kay hamaray mamalik aur awam ka mustaqbil
aman aur khush-hali,
taawun aur dosti ka ho.
Shukryia, Thank you, Gracias.
