In connection with 70th Anniversary celebrations of Pakistan, the Embassy of Pakistan in Manila participated in the annual International Evening Festival organized by the British School Manila on 23 February 2018. It was for the first time that Pakistan was represented in the School's international parade and international food buffet at an active scale.
The Embassy set up a big stall with two portions: One side providing authentic Pakistani cuisine whereas the other portion showcased traditional handicrafts and displayed tourism promotional posters. Pakistani contingent in the flag and ethnic dress show parade was led by Ambassador and Mrs. Dr. Aman Rashid while a large number of Pakistani origin children and their parents wearing fancy Pakistani dresses participated in the parade.
The event was attended by over 2000 people of 79 nationalities. Pakistani food was immensely liked by the foreigners and Pakistanis alike. Pakistani dresses elicited tangible public appreciation. Pakistan's soft image reflected on the touristic posters created visible interest among the viewers. The event lasted for about four hours.
