Suriname may be a small country in size, situated on the northeastern coast of South America, but the proactive approach of Aziz Memon, their Honorary Consul General in Karachi, makes it feel big in the diplomatic and trade circles of Pakistan. 

Aziz Memon, whose entrepreneurship and social sector engagements often hit headlines, also serves the cause of Suriname with his regular meetings with the Ambassadors and the High Commissioners of different countries. 

Most recently he had a meeting with the Ambassador of Belgium in Pakistan, Philippe Bronchain, in which matters of mutual interest were discussed. 

Working as the Honorary Consul General in Karachi, he could also be seen interacting with the business leaders at the offices of the Karachi Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCCI) as well as the Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FPCCI), urging them to invest in Suriname. 

Suriname, defined by vast swaths of tropical rain forest, offers attractive packages to the foreign investors in the most peaceful and serene environment. Its capital, Paramaribo, where palm gardens grow near Fort Zeelandia, a 17th-century trading post, is located on the Atlantic coast. The capital city is also home to Saint Peter and Paul Basilica, a towering wood cathedral consecrated in 1885.
