Pak-German Business Forum (PGBF) is responsible to promote, facilitate and support Industrial and Trade business relationship between the business communities of Pakistan and Germany. PGFB was formed on 3rd December 1997.
The Ambassador of Germany in Pakistan is the Patron-in-chief of this organisation. It has 160 members, comprising, heads of German multinational companies operating in Pakistan, members from organisations who have Industrial and trade relationship with Germany etc., PGBF operates in close contact with Federation of Pakistan Chamber of Commerce & Industry (FPCCI) and other chambers and enjoys their support and recognition.
In September 01, PGBF, signed an MOU, of business co-operation, with “Chamber of Commerce & Industry, Rahein-Neckar, Mannheim, Germany (IHK)”. IHK has more than 5000 members from the German Industrial & trade segments. The objective is to bring together the business communities of Pakistan & Germany into direct contact through a systematic, sustainable and long term approach. Based on the success of this MoU, PGBF has the intention to sign more MOUs with different chambers in Germany to bring together the business communities of Germany and Pakistan.
The activities of PGBF are mostly concentrated in Karachi. It is felt that its activites should be extended to whole of Pakistan specially in the North of Pakistan where large industrial & trade organisations, conducting business with Germany, have a strong presence.

a) To promote, facilitate and support business relationship between Pakistan & Germany.
