“Pakistan Trade & Cultural Center” inaugurated in the Pakistani Embassy in Bulgaria

ISLAMABAD: A “Pakistani Trade and Cultural Center” was inaugurated at the Pakistani embassy in the Bulgarian capital Sofia on Wednesday. The center exhibits samples of the main Pakistani export items, ie textile products, leather goods, sporting goods, surgical instruments and medical supplies, Himalayan salt products and traditional Pakistani handicrafts. Various paintings depicting the rich cultural diversity of Pakistan’s provinces are also on display in the center.

The inauguration was carried out by Tsvetan Simeonov, President of the Bulgarian Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Various businessmen from Sofia and representatives of the regional chambers attended the ceremony. On the occasion, Simeonov paid tribute to the embassy for its continuous efforts and initiatives to strengthen trade ties between the two friendly countries, including by organizing exhibitions and organizing B-2-B online meetings. He appreciated the Embassy’s initiative to set up this “Trade and Cultural Center”, which would help Bulgarian businessmen enormously as they could see the samples directly and get information about the respective companies.

On that occasion, he also encouraged Bulgarian companies to take advantage of Pakistan’s GSP+ status, which allows duty-free import of products into European Union markets. In her speech, Host Ambassador Mariam Aftab thanked Simeonov and BCCI officials for their continued support of all Mission initiatives aimed at strengthening trade ties between the two countries. She said the real trade volume between the two countries still does not match the real potential that exists between the two economies.

In this context, she encouraged Bulgarian companies to take advantage of the unexplored Pakistani market and established useful business connections with her colleagues there. In this regard, she assured the affected business associations and companies in Bulgaria of the Embassy’s full support. On this occasion, the participants were also shown documentaries presenting the commercial and tourism potential as well as the rich cultural diversity of Pakistan.
