Message from the President

President, “Vaseem Anwar”

The American Business Forum (ABF) Pakistan is a 'not for profit' organization to provide a sound platform for smooth business functioning to American Businesses in Pakistan, by providing knowledge and understanding of core business challenges.
The organization aims to foster American interests and promote all that is best from American business in Pakistan. The Pakistan. market is of increasing importance to more American companies than previously. By working closely with the US Embassy, US Trade and Investment and the US Business Council, the organization supports the creation of business networks, facilitates discussions with business people, trade missions and delegations and liaises with overseas trade agencies in the America with the purpose of wining more business.
We have continuously strived to achieve our objectives within a short span of time. Our name has already become synonymous with our commitments to assisting our business and trade communities in terms of sharing knowledge, products and creative innovations.
We are building a platform poised for the future and appropriated by a well-thought-out-strategy of vertical integration and diversification. As a result, we have been able to respond to greater opportunities, in those markets where we as individuals have traditionally served, while also creating synergetic opportunities in new areas of bi-lateral trade between Pakistan and America. With a revitalized zeal, vision and commitment to strengthening and growing for common good, we plan to lead into the future as the apex facilitation entity for business and trade promotion.
The success of the American Business Forum is due to the enthusiasm and commitment of its membership. I hope that you will join soon and contribute to the business sector groups and event committees, participate in the social gatherings and help the organization promote the best of American products and services in Pakistan.
