Washington: Leading Republican from New York, former Congressman Tom Reynolds, who represents Washington’s top lobbying firm Holland & Knight, called on the Foreign Minister at the Embassy this afternoon.
On this occasion, a contract between Pakistan Embassy and Holland & Knight for provision of lobbying services to Pakistan was signed. Joining former Congressman Reynolds will be a team comprised of other former members of Congress, former senior Administration officials, Capitol Hill veterans and other professional experts. It may be recalled that despite pressing requirements of the unique political scene in the United States, the Embassy had no lobbyist during the past six years.
Noting the importance of the Prime Minister’s upcoming visit to the US in revitalizing the Pakistan-US bilateral relations, the Foreign Minister hoped that Holland & Knight would be able to work efficiently with the Embassy to advance Pakistan’s interests in the United States.
Congressman Reynolds thanked the Foreign Minister for reposing confidence in Holland & Knight and assured him of their full support in forging strong Pakistan-US bilateral relations based on mutual respect and mutuality of interests.
