Good evening & ASSALAM O ALAIKUM
On Behalf of Paklink Australia, I would like to thank you all for sharing their precious time especially on this working day to attend this event, when we are celebrating the 4th anniversary of Paklink magazine.
4 years back we were thinking how we can serve the community in a better way; the feedback from the community was to start a community based magazine. We were delighted to accept the Community’s desire and started publication of this magazine. Today , we are 4 years old and the time flies like a blink of eye.

Paklink is the only Pakistani based tabloid magazine that is being issued regularly. It has picked up its pace in local as well as in ethnic community. This is the only bilingual Urdu & English magazine that has maintained its continuous publication unlike others. It is covering the news and events held in Australia and other parts of the world.
We on our part, in these 4 years, tried our level best to live up to the Community’s expectations and build the image of this magazine and we hope we have achieved somewhat in local as well as in ethnic community . Your presence here today gives us encouragement that we may have been able to deliver well. We undertake to continue this mission and serve even better in the future.
This success would not have been possible without the support of our sponsors who have continuously supported us in issuing these publications. Most of the sponsors are sitting here, so I want to thank them for their continuous support and hope they will be supporting us in future as well.We haveto spend a large amount of money from our own sources to continue this magazine and serve the community.
