I am tremendously honoured to be a patron of Labour Friends of Pakistan. As a British citizen of Pakistani origin it is truly inspiring to see the excellent work this organisation is doing to strengthen the historic relationship that exists between the UK and Pakistan. At a time when the world is becoming increasingly globalised, it has never been more crucial for our two countries to work together in addressing the challenges we face. Pakistan is one of our most important regional allies. Unfortunately, it faces many challenges on a host of fronts, including its security, infrastructure development and the promotion of good governance.

I am incredibly proud that under the previous Labour Government UK aid to Pakistan was doubled to £480 million with a focus on improving the provision of basic education and healthcare. As a former member of the House of Commons International Development Committee I have seen some of the fantastic work that is being done in Pakistan by the Department for International Development.

I congratulate Faiz ul Rasool – founder & chairman of Labour Friends of Pakistan, and look forward to working with him to further develop the links between the Labour Party and Pakistan.
