The 50 founding member Advisory Council, under the leadership of founding President Dr. Ashraf Abbasi, established PCC-USA as a premier business organization in Houston, Texas, on August 14, 1997 to coincide with the Golden jubilee of Pakistan Independence Day.
Goals of the Chamber are two fold; to help promote and strengthen good relations between our adopted homeland of USA and country of our origin, Pakistan, through Trade and Commerce; and to help Pakistani-American business community within USA to fully benefit and enjoy the freedom and opportunities offered by this great country.
The affairs of the Chamber and affiliate organizations are administered by an Executive Board of Directors. The EBD consists of elected Officers of PCC-USA as well as the Chairpersons of the standing committees.
Strategic industry and business linkages have been a partnership strategy of PCC-USA for many years. This approach has enhanced the business lobbying and networking opportunities for US based Pakistani corporate leaders to effectively synergize resources with important local, regional, national and international partners.
