Message from the Chairman (Julian Hamilton Barns) and CEO (Rashid Iqbal) of Pakistan Britain Business Council (“PBBC”)

PBBC recognises that Pakistan is, as with many other countries, struggling with the Coronavirus pandemic and facing a major financial impact to its economy as a result. Therefore, we welcome, support and endorse the request by Prime Minister Imran Khan to all overseas Pakistanis, including British Pakistanis, to step forward and to donate generously to the Coronavirus Relief Fund which will assist in mitigating the impact of the disease and thereby mitigating suffering in Pakistan.

The Pakistani Diaspora are known for their generosity and in these difficult times we are sure that the overseas Pakistani Diaspora as always will be keen to support the healthcare needs of the Pakistani people particularly those underprivileged families living in poverty. Accordingly, PBBC encourages all members and contacts in the UK and around the world to delve deep into their pockets and to make donations to the Coronavirus Relief Fund via https://e-payment.nbp.com.pk/

PBBC in terms of its mandate to develop trade and investment between the UK and Pakistan and the UK remains committed to assist the Government of Pakistan in meeting its social needs to the Pakistani people through these difficult times.
