Message :
Today, we are celebrating the 79thanniversary of the adoption of the Pakistan Resolution with traditional zeal and zest. On this historic day, the Muslims of the subcontinent gathered in Lahore under the inspiring leadership of Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah. The resolution was presented by A.K. FazlulHuq which changed the course of history. On of 23 March 1940 the Muslims of the subcontinent through their collective will expressed unshakeable resolve to carve out a separate homeland for themselves wherein they could fashion their lives in accordance with their own tradition, values, and culture. Through their tireless struggle, unparalleled commitment and with the blessings of Almighty Allah they achieved their objective within a short span of seven years.
Our national objectives include socio-economic development, maintaining cordial relations with other countries, based on mutual respect and promoting peace and stability among nations. Pakistan is a proud Muslim country of over 200 million people with an ancient civilization and at the same time, a modern country. The land that constitutes Pakistan has been one of the oldest sites of human habitation. We are proud to be home to the Mehergarh, Gandhara, and Indus valley civilization, spanning a period of 9,000 years.
Pakistan's economy is on the rise and is poised to become a regional economic power. The China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) is the flagship project of "One Belt and One Road initiative" of China. CPEC has the potential to change the fate of the region in terms of socio-economic development. The mega flagship project will usher in an era of prosperity and progress not only in Pakistan but beyond. As the ultimate objective of Pakistan is to promote peace, prosperity, and well-being of the people of the wholeregion. The CPEC is not only a game-changer but also a fate-changer for the region and beyond.
Pakistan and Bangladesh enjoy a special relationship that continues to deepen. Our brotherly relations are based on common religion and shared aspirations of peace and economic development. Both the countries maintain a cooperative approach at the bilateral and multilateral levels. The people-to-people contact continues with the exchange of visits. Our bilateral trade and investment have registered healthy growth.
Bangladesh in its own right is a natural hub between South Asia and East Asia. Together, we can act as a bridge to bring this whole region into an integrated network of trade and energy corridors. Our close cooperation in OIC and other international fora provides a firm basis for this partnership.
Our bilateral trade is expected to reach almost one billion dollars in the next few years. Partnerships in the areas of trade, commerce, health, education, and culture have prospered.

(H.E. Mr. Shah Faisal Kakar, Acting High Commissioner of Pakistan in Dhaka)
