A number of Pakistani American Organizations came together last evening (May 21) in Houston to host a reception in honour of Mr. Aizaz Ahmed Chaudhry, Pakistan’s Ambassador to the US, on the evening of 21 May 2017.
The community leaders, students, businessmen, and Pakistani Americans from different walks of life met the Ambassador Aizaz Chaudhry and expressed their views on how to further strengthen Pakistan-US ties.
The Consul General, in her welcome remarks, highlighted the important role being played by the Pakistani diaspora in promoting the positive image of Pakistan.
The Ambassador Chaudhry, in his address, paid a rich tribute to the role of US-based Pakistanis not only in strengthening Pakistan’s economy but also in showcasing soft image and goodwill for the country. He also informed the audience that improving the consular facilitation is a high priority for the Embassy and our four consulates.
The Ambassador informed the participants about the improving security situation in the country due to the successes in our fight against terrorism and the resolve of the government to root out the extremist and anti Pakistan forces. He also highlighted economic turnaround of the country and the new investment opportunities it provides to the investors.
In his concluding remarks, Ambassador Chaudhry called upon the young Pakistani Americans to build upon the achievements of the previous generation and to play an active role in local politics.
On the occasion, the Ambassador was presented with a shield from the notable community members.
