Ambassador Jesper Møller Sørensen
Denmark and Pakistan enjoy a solid and positive range of relations including political and development cooperation, which has been the cornerstone in the relationship between Denmark and Pakistan. As part of our commitment to support global development and equality for all, the Government of Denmark launched its Pakistan program through our official development agency, the Danish International Development Agency (Danida) in 2010.
I am happy to share that Danida will be extending and expanding its support to the people of Pakistan through a new program commencing in the autumn 2013. It will focus on reconstruction, rehabilitation and peace-building with special focus on education and the socio-economic uplift of the north- western border areas.
Being appointed as Ambassador to Pakistan is a great honor for me, but it is also a role which holds great responsibility. Pakistan is a large and significant country in a very important region of the world.
Parallel to our support for social cohesion, development and democratic institutions in Pakistan, we will work to strengthen our relationship based on mutual trust, mutual respect and mutual benefit. That is why we will be increasing our efforts to strengthen trade relations between our two countries.
Pakistan, despite its challenges, has a great market potential, and Danish businesses have strong holds in areas such as wind, life science and health, energy efficiency and dairy production. We would also welcome more Pakistani companies in Denmark. Both countries have knowledge and market potential, which can be of mutual benefit.
I assure you of my full commitment to support the strong relations between Denmark and Pakistan through development, trade and open dialogue.
