TORONTO, Nov. 24, 2016 /CNW/ - The President and Founder of K-Mobile, Mr. Shami Munir, was among business executives travelling to Pakistan on a business mission this month to explore business opportunities with the growing Pakistan Information & Communications Technology (ICT) sector. The mission follows Mr. Munir's participation in a collaborative seminar in Toronto attended by 36 Canadian companies, hosted by the Canada Pakistan Business Council (CPBC) and the Government of Ontario's Ministry of International Trade.
"I commend CPBC's President Samir Dossal and the Ontario Ministry International Trade for taking the initiative to start this dialogue among ICT companies in Canada and Pakistan," said Mr. Munir. "Over the past 17 years, I have launched several companies in Canada in the telecommunications industry. Having immigrated from Pakistan, I am eager to explore these Canadian-Pakistan business opportunities and look for valuable synergies."
"Canadian companies, like K-Mobile, have expertise to further ICT connections between Canada and Pakistan," said Mr. Dossal. "With a Canadian-Pakistani Diaspora of 300,000 and Pakistan consumer base of 50 million, there is a great opportunity to leverage new business-to-business collaboration."
Mr. Munir provided K-Mobile gifts to all attendees at last week's informative and interactive session, which was attended by many ICT professionals including the Consul General of Pakistan in Toronto, Honourable Imran Ahmed Siddiqui, and the Ontario Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration, Dr. Shafiq Qaadri. He is also supplying K-Mobile gifts during his Pakistan business mission.
