Making waves in the industry and abroad, Pakistan’s very first documentary maker Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy has been officially appointed as the new Consul General of Norway in Karachi.

Chinoy expressed her sentiments by quoting that she felt “honored” to step into her new role and is looking forward to building stronger ties between the two countries through her attempts to encourage collaboration in clean energy, technology, and other related businesses.
