The Consular Camp, which is part of the Consulate General’s “Consulate in your Town” initiative received an overwhelming response from the community and a large number of applicants turned up to authenticate their documents and avail of other consular services. They deeply appreciated the visit of the Consulate’s team, which helped them to avoid undertaking visits to Chicago.

Speaking at the Seminar, the Consul General paid rich tribute to the great poet, thinker, and philosopher while highlighting the universality of his message.

During his interactions with the Pakistani-American community, the Consul General highlighted his priorities which, inter alia, included: provision of speedy quality services to Pakistani-American community and actively engaging them as a bridge between the two countries; outreaching local dignitaries and institutions to promote mutually beneficial partnership and people-to-people interactions; and, pursuing economic diplomacy to

He lauded the contribution made by the vibrant Pakistani-American community in the socio-economic development of the two countries and encouraged them to continue to play their leading role in this regard.
