  • Pakistan-Switzerland Friendship moot begins from May 29
    May 30, 2015

    With an aim to promote cultural and economic ties between the two countries, the 100-day "Pakistan-Switzerland Friendship Exhibition" would start here at Jinnah International Airport (JIAP) from May 29. This was announced by Swiss Consul General in Karachi Emil Wyss during a press conference held here at the Swiss Consulate on Friday.

    He was flanked by Yasmin Peermohamed, President of Swiss Business Council (SBC) and Country Manager of SWISS International Airlines and Asghar Fahim Khattak, the outgoing Airport Manager at JIAP. The Swiss Consulate General is organising this unique event in collaboration with SBC as a co-organiser. Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) would be the venue partner while Badar Expo Solutions would be the event manager.

    "This is the first-of-its-kind exhibition, to be ever held at any Pakistani airport, which would last for 100 days," said Wyss, who was dressed in the prestigious Pakistani national dress: "Shalwar Qameez". Terming the event as a "new stepping stone" for the two countries to move forward in their bilateral relations, the consul general said the informative exhibition was being organised to celebrate the long, friendly, bilateral relations between Pakistan and Switzerland.

    "To promote the positive image of Pakistan, and to ultimately attract more foreign direct investment (FDI)," he added. Wyss, however, would not guess-estimate as to how much FDI the host country would be attracting at the end of the exhibition. Through this event general information on Pakistan and Switzerland would be displayed and as success stories Pakistani as well as Swiss companies are represented in it, said the consul general. During the exhibition, a life-size model of Swiss cow painted by team of Phool Patti in traditional Pakistani truck-art would also be put on display to be used as a guest book. The cow model, the diplomat said, would be auctioned at the end of the exhibition for charity.

    Of the 22 brands actively participating in the exhibition are Nestlé Pakistan, Al-Karam, Pakistan International Airlines, Mehran Group and Rado as Platinum sponsors. To create awareness, weekly contests would be held in which visiting passengers and people following the consulate general's facebook page - www.facebook.com/ SwissConsulateKarachi -can take part and win exciting prizes.

    To empower Pakistani youth talent, the consulate general had also engaged 10 bright and dynamic student facilitators to be able to interact with the visiting passengers and provide them useful information. Asghar Fahim Khattak, the JIAP official who had been engaged with Swiss Consulate since September last year to materialise the event, also spoke on the occasion. "In a kind of milieu we Pakistanis or Karachiites are living such events are really needed to show the world that we Pakistanis have not given up (to anti-state elements)," Khattak said.

    The event, he said, would allow the people of two countries to interact. To a question, Wyss said airport was the most suitable venue for a friendship exhibition like this as "an airport is a place where you have business people, tourists, politicians, government officials and even pilgrims". During 100 days every one of the policy-makers would travel through the airport at least once, hoped the consul general. Also present at the occasion were Ehtesham Bari, Director Marketing, Badar Expo Solutions and representatives of all sponsors.
