“The Pakistani members of the Young Presidents Organization (YPO), a chapter of World Presidents Organization (WPO), together with their international counterparts, would take a leading role through which international events could be held in Pakistan and ideas shared between our government as well as private organizations to create opportunities for further development of our natural resources, energy sector, industries, agriculture and most importantly education.”
This was stated by Arif Ali Shah Bukhari, Regional Member YPO while speaking at the launch of YPO Capital Pakistan at a ceremony held in Islamabad.
The YPO, he pointed out, as an organization created opportunities for them and in turn allowed them to grow personally and professionally.
"The YPO goal is to ensure that every member’s experience is a unique and personal journey filled with many opportunities for growth,” he said adding that as a peer organization, we expect a lot from one another.
This peer connection, he said, makes us, to our core, the world’s leading network of chief executives.
Arif Bukhari revealed that the YPO-WPO is a global network of 20,000 top executives based in 100 countries out of which 150 Pakistanis have the distinction of being members of the prestigious organization.
“The YPO’s mission is to create better leaders through education and idea exchange", he emphasized.
He said that the organization promotes the holding of high-level meetings through which global business opportunities are enhanced.
"The YPO/WPO is an excellent platform through which we can very constructively help change the perception of Pakistan for the better,” he reckoned.
“Together with our international counterparts, we can bring investments in Pakistan. We seek the support of President Asif Ali Zardari to build feasible strategies with which we would be able to make Pakistan a truly progressive industrial and agricultural nation,” Arif Bukhari observed.
He called for making the gathering of YPO members a take-off point from where we may learn about the vision of our President for our country. He spoke and threw light on the working and contribution of the organizations for uplift of the economy.
