The Ambassador of France to Pakistan, H.E. Mr Régis de Belenet went on a trip to Sialkot last 13th and 14th of November. It was for him an opportunity to pay a visit to the birth place of great poet and philosopher Allama Muhammad Iqbal, father of Pakistan.
This trip was also for him an opportunity to meet several politicians. With MNA Mrs. Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan, he visited a NADRA rural center and the women vocational training center which Mrs. Awan founded and leads. A visit paid to the leadership college gave him the opportunity to discuss with the young male and female students.
Having met the President and the members of the chamber of commerce and industry, he visited factories which make Sialkot a world-known city (sports goods, leather clothes for the major international brand names, surgical goods). He visited also the international airport which will be soon completed thanks to the remarkable commitment of the business community.
