The goal of the Mayor's visit is to forge closer ties with the Pakistani business community and focus on meeting the young, up-and-coming generation who will play a key role in the ongoing development of the country. The government, in collaboration with the Department for International Development of the United Kingdom, had already introduced far-reaching reforms in education, healthcare and skills development sectors.

"The foreign minister also briefed the mayor about Pakistan's successes in the economic field and the regional situation", a Foreign Office statement said. He was happy to note that Pakistan and its society were progressing. "I found Lahore as I had heard of it. It is the heart of Pakistan and is certainly the hub of Pakistani culture", Khan is quoted to have said.

Khan was elected the first Muslim Mayor of London and was born in Tooting, south-west London.
