This exchanges of ideas aims to be highly effective in harmonizing the relations between these respective countries.
The delegates raised among other topics, the close ties between the Denmark and Pakistan.
The Danish Delegates expressed great satisfaction and appreciation of the support that Pakistani citizens have offered the Danish Companies through its immense workforce that have been provided towards enriching Danish Companies. A company that has benefited greatly from this is “Scandinavian Design” who works towards providing furniture with a Scandinavian touch of both culture and aesthetics. Similar collaborations will hopefully be the key for further harmonization of business and trade between the nations.
The aim of this meeting is to build a commercial bridge between the business sector of Denmark and Pakistan and to exchange knowledge, technology and consultancy. Pakistan has a population of 210 million out of which about 50 % of the population are between the ages of 19 and 25 years. A young workforce means having more innovative minds. It also means Pakistan is able to better leverage technology and increase efficiency. A growing and young workforce is also an advantage for both the manufacturing and services sectors. Not only do businesses have access to people that are young and physically fit, it means less cost pressures, particularly on the wage front, because of the availability of labor.
Pakistan also has an affluent middle class of more than 50 million people. The growing middle class in Pakistan demands western standards and this youthful population is also contributing to consumption boom in Pakistan. This is a big reason why Pakistan has attracted more than 600 Western companies to establish cooperation with Pakistani companies with great success and this very reason can form the basis for the establishment of cooperation between Denmark and Pakistan
