The programme integrates with the Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (PRSP) finalised in 2004 and the Strategic Trade Policy Framework of Pakistan (2009-2012). The programme aims are closely aligned with the Pakistan-European Community Country Strategy Paper for 2007-2013. The importance of development of international trade for poverty reduction was further emphasised by the Second EU-Pakistan Summit (held in Brussels in June 2010). The overall objective and the programme purpose were therefore found to remain relevant to the overall policy objectives of the parties.
