PR No.297 PAKISTAN ON TRACK TO BECOME ASIAN TIGER AMBASSADOR HASHMI ADDRESSES PARTICIPANTS OF PAKISTAN DAY RECEPTION Islamabad: March 29, 2017

“The improvement in security situation  has resulted  in a positive impact on Pakistan’s  economy and with a substantial increase in its economic growth rate the country can  be seen going on the right track of  development to become an Asian Tiger in near future”,  said  Pakistan’s Ambassador to Belgium Luxembourg and European Union  Mrs Naghmana Alamgir Hashmi while addressing a large gathering of Belgian and European parliamentarians, senior diplomats, academics and media persons at the Pakistan Day reception  arranged by the Embassy of Pakistan in Brussels to mark 77 years of  the Pakistan Resolution, says a press release received here today from Brussels.

Ambassador Hashmi said that Pakistan has made huge sacrifices in war against terrorism. The sacrifices made by her country were not only for the security of its own citizens but to make the entire world safe from the menace of terrorism and being the  frontline state it  suffered most in terms loss of human lives and material resources.

Two photographic exhibitions arranged on this occasion became centre of attraction for the participants. One of them was an exhibition of photographs of spectacular mountains of Pakistan taken by Belgian journalists who visited Pakistan for trekking, as Pakistan has 8 of the world’s top 15highest peaks including the second highest peak K2.

The other exhibition was that of photographs and videos by Finland based Pakistani artist Nayab Ikram who works with concepts of cultural identity formation. Her art project “In Between” is about feeling of belonging to two different cultures.  She uses hair as a symbol and through photographs and videos looks at hair from the perspective of modern and traditional cultures.

Belgian artists Arnaud Eurin and Carlo Strazzante enthralled audience by playing tunes of Pakistani songs on Sitar and Tabla on this occasion.
