The Pak Banker - - Front Page -


The ECO, since its in­cep­tion has achieved many mile­stones and Pak­istan will con­tinue to play its rule for fur­ther devel­op­ment and strength­en­ing of the or­ga­ni­za­tion, said For­eign Min­is­ter Hina Rab­bani Khar on Tues­day.

In her mes­sage she said,“On the oc­ca­sion of the 20th ECO Day, it gives me great plea­sure to con­vey felic­i­ta­tions of the Government and the peo­ple of the Is­lamic Repub­lic of Pak­istan to the Mem­ber States of Eco­nomic Co­op­er­a­tion Or­ga­ni­za­tion (ECO).

ECO has come a long way since its in­cep­tion. The Or­ga­ni­za­tion has achieved im­por­tant progress in achiev­ing eco­nomic co­op­er­a­tion in the re­gion. How­ever, while we cel­e­brate the Or­ga­ni­za­tion’s achieve­ments, we must also take this op­por­tu­nity and re­flect on the chal­lenges still fac­ing the ECO re­gions. The 20th Coun­cil of Min­is­ters and 12th ECO Sum­mit held in Oc­to­ber 2012 in Baku, Azer­bai­jan pro­vided us a good op­por­tu­nity in this re­gard. I am con­fi­dent that we will be able to timely achieve the ob­jec­tives and agree­ments reached dur­ing the Sum­mit. I would like to avail this op­por­tu­nity to re­it­er­ate Pak­istan’s con­tin­ued com­mit­ment and sup­port to ECO and our com­mon en­deav­our to achieve greater re­gional co­op­er­a­tion”, she con­cluded.
