In 2011, CIPE celebrates its fifth year of work in Pakistan. Since establishing its Pakistan office in January 2006, CIPE has built a strong reputation as an honest and knowledgeable broker, and a facilitator of important discussions between the business community and government. With an approach of paying close attention to local conditions and looking for openings for potential reforms, CIPE has supported the business community in a range of efforts that have led to significant achievements.

These include reforming the law governing chambers of commerce and business associations, improving access to microfinance through the State Bank of Pakistan, raising standards of corporate governance, improving the quality of economic journalism, and providing a level playing field for women entering business by helping to launch and build the capacity of women’s chambers. In carrying out these programs, CIPE has worked with a wide range of chambers and associations, think tanks, academic institutions, NGOs and government institutions across the country.

Each year, CIPE compiles a Pakistan Activities Report, highlighting the achievements, successes and exceptional nature of the work carried out by these partners. You can learn more about our work in CIPE Pakistan’s newest report, covering our activities for 2010. Read the report here.

  1. I am sure that CIPE-Pakistan journey of success and achievements will move on in future as well. Mr.Moin Fudda, Country Director and Mr.Hammad Siddique, Deputy Country Director and their team deserve great appreciation for completing five successful years and bringing revolutionary changes in the working of business associations in Pakistan which were operating in a very conventional way.

    The Secretary Generals and President’s Conferences made a huge impact and provided excellent connectivity and harmony among the Chambers and Associations that were moving in isolation. I wish all the best to CIPE-Pakistan team for great success in its future programs.

    The way CIPE team, lead by Mr Moin Fudda and actively assisted by Hammad Siddqui , had made significant progress in adding value, creating new and non conventional methodology for economic progress in the country is unmatchable.

    We must appreciate the team and strengthen their mission in what ever role we can play to gear the economy and society in the right direction.
