Ambassador Khalil Hashmi has concluded an orientation visit to Sichuan province, the economic and cultural hub of Southwest China. 

During his visit, Ambassador Hashmi interacted with the provincial leadership, business enterprises, academia, the Pakistani community and Chinese media and held detailed discussions. 

Engaging with Pakistani students from universities in Sichuan province, Ambassador Hashmi emphasized the historic significance of Pakistan-China ties and the enduring bond of "iron brothers." He stressed the need to further strengthen these time-tested relations. Prior to this interaction, the Ambassador met the Sichuan University President, highlighting the importance of academic research and scholarship in advancing bilateral relations. The Ambassador also visited the Pakistan Research and Study Center at Sichuan University that was established in 2008. 

With a key focus on enhancing Pakistan's exports and attract Chinese investment, the Ambassador interacted with diverse business enterprises in sectors like agriculture, dairy, electronics, and logistics. He also participated in an investment round table organized by the provincial China Council for Promotion of International Trade and encouraged enterprises and businesses to take advantage of a liberal taxation regime and invest in export-oriented industries in Pakistan. 

Ambassador Hashmi also addressed a ceremony, celebrating the arrival of the first batch of 182 tons of Pakistani dry chilies in China. These chilies, produced by a Sichuan-based company in Multan, are part of agricultural cooperation under the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor.  

In interactions with the Pakistani community in Sichuan, Ambassador Hashmi underscored the Embassy's commitment to public service, and assured full support of his team. 

The visit served to inject additional momentum to the already robust political and economic ties between Pakistan and Sichuan province of China. Such orientation visits are also planned for other regions this year.
