Lahore, UK Manchester Chamber of Commerce is celebrating another successful trade visit, after meeting visiting representatives of Lahore Chamber of Commerce & Industry LCCI, says message received here Monday from Manchester.
The visitors met Manchester Chamber Chief Executive, Clive Memmott, and members of its international trade team. Clive said: “As Chambers we share something very important in common. We are the largest, and most influential, Chambers in our respective countries.”
“In the world of Chambers of Commerce, our large memberships mean that we have real influence over our respective governments (both national and local) as representative voice of business (big and small) and therefore voices of Lahore and Manchester are heard loud on our national stages.”
“Our two cities are steeped in history of textile industry. Manchester was home of textiles in the UK and Lahore is a major force in Pakistan s huge textile sector. Manchester has had to radically diversify its economy and is now the country s second biggest economic area with economy worth over 50bn. Our city has become, by economic advance, and culture contribution, Britain s second city. Outside of London we are the place that is best equipped for growth.”
The visit by Lahore Chamber of Commerce follows a recent visit by Dublin Chamber of Commerce. Working with UK Trade & Investment, the Chamber continues to organize and support wide variety of market visits and sector missions to explore new markets and new opportunities.
