Islamabad, August 23, 2022 (PPI-OT):Pakistan Ambassador to United States Masood Khan has said that more than 6,000 sellers from Pakistan were registered last year on Amazon platforms after the leading global e-commerce giant opened seller registration for the country. He was addressing a 35-member delegation of Washington Intergovernmental Professional Group (WIPG) who interacted with him at the Embassy.
The delegation comprised former governor of Puerto Rico Luis Fortuno, WIPG President Nelson Garcia, economists, government officials, presidents and CEOs of corporations, entrepreneurs, investment fund managers, legal experts and diplomats. Ambassador Masood Khan said this is a significant breakthrough for Pakistan providing much-needed international online business exposure to the country.
He said the volume of Amazon-supported businesses would grow exponentially with better networking and integration with US online platforms. The Ambassador said that better networking among Pak-US professionals, IT experts, businessmen, entrepreneurs and corporate leaders would create win-win solutions for the two countries and would help meet the growing needs of US economy.
He said Pakistan provides ideal conditions for the US investors and entrepreneurs to explore, invest and expand their businesses not only to Pakistan but to the Central Asia, West Asia, Middle East and North America. He said that all efforts are being made to create strong linkages at all levels including government-to-government, business-to-business and most importantly people-to-people contacts. The Ambassador thanked the Washington-based group for exploring ways to integrate Pakistani professionals with their peers in America.
