Denmark and Pakistan enjoy strong and positive relations. The Danish-Pakistani relationship is built on many years of political-, economic- and development cooperation.
Denmark has for many years supported the Pakistani people and the Government of Pakistan in their efforts to consolidate democracy and support social and economic development. The people of Pakistan have good reason to be proud of their achievements in these areas over the last decades. Today, Pakistan plays an increasing regional and global role by engaging actively in handling global challenges, such as combat of terrorism. Being appointed Chargé d'Affaires to Pakistan is indeed a great honour for me and I am very aware of the responsibility and demands this position entails. I can assure you of my full commitment to continuously promote the wide-ranging relationship between Denmark and Pakistan and to increase mutual understanding and friendship between the people of our countries. To me, friendship is based on mutual respect, understanding and open dialogue. My goal is to make this friendship even stronger in the years to come and that is what I am workingon every day together with my great team at the Embassy. Moving forward in our relations, Denmark has increased its focus on promoting trade between our countries. Our commercial activities in Pakistan have a strong focus on contributing in areas where Danish knowledge and technology can deliver solutions for development needs in Pakistan such as wind energy, clean water, health and agri-business. In the future, trade will therefore be a lead instrument in our cooperation with Pakistan. I also feel very proud in sharing that Denmark has around 35,000 people of Pakistani origin living in Denmark, who are important contributors to Danish society. The Pakistani Diaspora is therefore also an important partner in promoting bilateral relations between Denmark and Pakistan. At this website, you will find information about the work of the Embassy and the services we provide. We welcome your comments on how to improve our services and our website. I also invite you to visit our Facebook page and stay updated on news related to Denmark and Pakistan. With the hope that the relationship between Denmark and Pakistan will continue to prosper in the future it is a great joy for me to welcome you to the website of the Embassy of Denmark in Pakistan.
