Purpose of the group

To promote and enhance understanding between Scotland and Pakistan at cultural, social, academic, political and economic levels. Develop contact with the Pakistan Parliament and other institutions for advancing mutual interests of Scotland and Pakistan. Also the Cross Party would represent the interest of people/organisations with Pakistani background living and working in Scotland and act as a forum for the Community living in Scotland. Already a sister organisation in Pakistan has been established called “Friends of Scotland” in the Pakistani Parliament, and Lahore Chamber of Commerce have established a committee on Scotland to work with the CPG.
