In September 1, PGBF, signed an MOU, of business co-operation, with "Chamber of Commerce & Industry, Rahein-Neckar, Mannheim, Germany (IHK)". IHK has more than 5000 members from the German Industrial & trade segments. The objective is to bring together the business communities of Pakistan & Germany into direct contact through a systematic, sustainable and long term approach. Based on the success of this MOU, PGBF has the intention to sign more MOUs with different chambers in Germany to bring together the business communities of Germany and Pakistan.
