The 5,000 Pakistani students studying in Germany were singled out by FM Qureshi, who promised that further efforts would be made to extend educational cooperation through the Higher Education Commission.
He also listed the Pakistani community in Germany as an important aspect of improving people-to-people relations, and said that the recently launched Roshan Digital Pakistan project aimed to make money transfers easier for expatriates.
Foreign Minister Qureshi inaugurated a Football Enclave at the Pakistan embassy, as Pakistan is a leading exporter of sporting goods. This decision was taken in light of a new deal between Pakistan and Germany for the annual export of over 50 million footballs.
