U.S.-Pakistan Business Council

The U.S.-Pakistan Business Council (USPBC) is dedicated to the broad advancement of U.S. commercial engagement in Pakistan. Since its inception in 2002, the Council has provided a national forum for dialogue on key economic, political, and other issues of interest to American companies operating in or exploring business opportunities in Pakistan.

The U.S-Pakistan Business Council's mission is to enhance trade and investment between the U.S. and Pakistan and promote the bilateral economic and business relationship at the highest levels of leadership in both countries.

Our Goals and Priorities

  • Advocate for the advancement of stronger commercial ties between the United States and Pakistan.
  • Advance public-private sector dialogue on a wide range of economic issues to strengthen two-way trade and investment between the United States and Pakistan.
  • Promote policy reforms to improve the business climate, encourage a more conducive regulatory environment, and drive investment and economic growth in Pakistan.
  • Encourage international best practices to develop Pakistan’s technology sector, and enable the introduction of the latest technologies into the market.
  • Strengthen intellectual property rights protection and enforcement in Pakistan.
  • Enhance cooperation with key organizations in both countries to ensure cohesive and coordinated strategies in promoting U.S. private sector interests in Pakistan.
