Message from the Ambassador

It is a matter of great satisfaction that the Pakistani Dutch community, with the support of Pakistan Embassy and Gemeente The Amsterdam, is organizing the Sixth Pakistan Cultural Festival 2016. I am confident that the festival this year will consolidate, and build on, the success of the earlier festivals, which attracted thousands of visitors to Pakistani music, cuisine and an array of cultural activities. I am happy to note that this year's Festival promises to be an upgrade by several notches on the last years' events. This is indeed a valuable contribution of Pakistani-Dutch community bringing various communities together in sports, culture and fun. I am confident that such activities would help promote greater harmony and understanding amongst the various communities residing in the Netherlands. I wish the organizers all the success and hope that the participants will have an entertaining and enjoyable time at the festival.
