CPCoC is a forum to identify trade opportunities and enable investment flows between Canada and Pakistan. CPCoC also serves as a networking platform that brings together stakeholders and business leaders in the private and public sectors in both countries.

The organization is focused on fostering a holistic approach. It not only focus on boosting economic ties between Canada and Pakistan, but will also work on creating an enabling environment through close co-ordination with the governments of both Canada and Pakistan, as well as the private sector in both countries.
The key priorities for CPCoC include the following:

  • To establish CPCoC as the key forum for business communities in Canada and Pakistan to identify investment and trade opportunities in both countries;

  • To work closely with the governments of Canada and Pakistan to adopt policies which facilitate the flow of investment and goods between Canada and Pakistan;

  • To provide an effective communication channel that identifies constraints to the entry of goods and services; and

  • To work closely with the public and private sectors to eliminate trade and investment barriers, thus strengthening the economies of Canada and
    Pakistan.

The organization will initially focus on four sectors of AgricultureEnergyIT and Mining.  It will gradually expand its focus to other sectors of unilateral interest.
