Young entrepreneurs from India and Pakistan will explore business opportunities, visit world class institutions in Lahore and Islamabad and engage in bilateral dialogue for four days, beginning Oct 27.
The Commonwealth Asia Alliance of Young Entrepreneurs (CAAYE) will be organising the India-Pakistan Young Entrepreneurs' Summit in the two Pakistani cities as part of a series of bilateral meetings between young leaders of the two countries.
The mission will be led by Rahul Mirchandani, founder-president of CAAYE and past national chairman of Young Indians (YI).
CAAYE is a network of young entrepreneurs and the organisations that support them. It has been established to continually promote the cause of young entrepreneurs in their respective countries and will convene each year in advance of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting and relevant Commonwealth ministerial forums to provide a platform to present a united voice of young entrepreneurs.
This alliance has representatives from Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Singapore, Maldives, Brunei-Darussalam and India, a statement released Wednesday said.
The CAAYE India-Pakistan Bilateral Mission is organised by Young Entrepreneurs Forum of the Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Confederation of Indian Industry's Young Indians in association with "Aman Ki Asha".
The Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry's Young Entrepreneur Forum (YEF) is a group of young entrepreneurs and professionals who have come together to promote entrepreneurship among the youth of Pakistan.
The Confederation of Indian Industry's Young Indians (Yi) was formed in 2002 with the objective of creating a platform for young Indians to realise the dream of a developed nation.
The delegation will be represented by 25 young entrepreneurs from 15 cities of India, of which two are from Hyderabad.
