PABA Celebrates Over Three Decades of Success

Pakistan American Business Association (PABA) is celebrating its 32nd anniversary this year. The Virginia-based not-for-profit business organization was formed to provide necessary guidance to new business start-ups, particularly to those immigrants who were new to this country and had a little knowledge about how the system works here.

Over the years, PABA has transformed into a dynamic organization and a premier business networking and advocacy group, which is working to promote business and economic linkages between the United States and Pakistan.

Many of its members, who served the organization in various capacities in the past, are today running their own businesses successfully. PABA has also distinguished itself as a representative group of the Pakistani American community not just in the greater metropolitan area that includes Washington D.C., Maryland and Virginia, but also in several other states.

PABA is the brainchild of Virginia-based businessman, M. Siddique Sheikh, a Pakistani American who founded the organization in 1986. Its primary objective at the time was to particularly support immigrants from Pakistan.
