Cited by the World Bank as “the top reformer in its region and in the top 10 reformers globally”, Pakistan’s economy continues to perform a commendable growth as outcomes of its past fiscal year indicate a Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) of approximately US$5.1 Billion, contributing to an increase in its annual growth rate of 6.6% in GDP for the last five years. Clearly, these results show a strong confidence of players, both local and foreign, in the resilience of Pakistan’s economy amidst a series of domestic and external events of an unprecedented nature.
This impressive performance in the economy says so much about the structural economic policies that the Government of Pakistan has outlined and pursued relentlessly in order to restore macroeconomic balance and to improve the overall economic environment. Through prudent fiscal, monetary and exchange rate policies, financial discipline and consistent and transparent economic policies, a wide range of reforms was introduced in the areas of taxation, trade and tariffs, banking and finance, industry and agriculture, deregulation and privatization, fiscal transparency and governance. Indeed, they know their business more than anyone else. These efforts gained the interest of world industry leaders especially on the sectors of textile, machinery and transport equipment, food technology, minerals and lubricants, chemicals and manufactured goods like plastic, packaging and printing.
To date, Pakistan is a leading exporter of manufacturing goods as well as textile to bull markets such as US, UAE, UK and Germany. It is also a preferred market place for importers from China, Taiwan, Saudi Arabia, UAE, US and Japan.
Pakistan’s economy is as powerful and strong as its population of 1.6B. It has gained its bullish momentum, and there is definitely no stopping it.

ABOUT ITCN ASIA – Growth from a country event to a regional event
From its inception in 2001, ITCN Asia, now being organized for the 10th consecutive year, has grown up as the biggest IT & Telecom extravaganza of Pakistan. Most powerful brands of the world will showcase their state-of-the-art products and services which would allow the user community to get exposure to a wide range of technology and solutions under one roof. Most importantly, it would provide an opportunity for business-to-business alliances, leveraging their mutual strengths. ITCN Asia Exhibitions & Conferences have been playing a pivotal role in landmarking the image of Pakistan on the world IT Map, bringing in huge foreign and local investments in the Country.
Over the years ITCN Asia has grown from a country event to a regional event. Just a few years ago there were very few companies with quality certifications. Today, we have over 100 ISO certified companies, the thrust on quality was continued with two new projects targeted to take five companies to CMM level 5 and 30 companies to CMMi level 3 and above.
Software Technology Parks (STPs) are being set up in all the major cities. In Islamabad one International Technology Park (ITP)is already in operation in Awami Markaz, while land has already been earmarked for other STPs. In Lahore, certain areas have been identified and are being finalized. In Karachi an ITP is already in operation in Caesar Tower, while, land has been acquired opposite Civic Centre for a 47 storey high IT Tower, where construction would commence soon. On the bandwidth front, until very recently, there was only a single optic fiber cable for International connectivity. Today, we have 3 separate submarine cables for International connectivity. This will provide the much needed resilience to our data networks.
// ITCN Asia 2010 Exhibition is, where you will see newer & latest technologies and solutions in action. It is the foremost electronic business event for the enterprise decision makers in this region. Spanning 3 days on 3 – 5 August 2010, the Exhibition at Karachi Expo Centre, forms the core of IT Industry of the world. Yet another opportunity to showcase IT & Telecom products and interact with serious traffic, ITCN Asia 2010 is a one-stop shop where you can “test drive” all the products on your hit list. The Exhibition would serve as a comprehensive showcase of the latest in technology, equipment and machinery as well as allied services, simultaneously providing investors with a definite outlook of the regional IT & Telecom Industry and an opportunity to meet their prospective counterparts and business partners.
ITCN Asia 2010 is part of ITCN series that catapulted the local IT Industry, introducing Karachi as the regional IT hub attracting major IT players from all over the world.

Friday April 02, 2010: The 6th Health Asia 2010, Int’l Conferences in conjunction with 3rd Pharma Asia Int’l Conference & Exhibition, was inaugurated by Capt. Dr. Abdul Majid, Special Secretary, Public Health, Sindh, today, here at Karachi Expo Center. Gohar Wajid, Advisor to the Director General, Ministry of Health UAE, Salman Burney, MD GlaxoSmithKline, Dr. Sarmad Maqbool, Abbott Laboratories Pakistan, Dr. Asima Zahid, Health Sciences, Institute of Business Management, Ali Haider, Asst. GM, Health Insurance, Adamjee Insurance Company Ltd., Dr. Khursheed Nizam, President, Ecommerce Gateway Pakistan, Ozair A. Hanafi, CEO, Ecommerce Gateway and Farhan Anis, VP, Ecommerce Gateway Pakistan were also present in the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony.
The Event is organized by Ecommerce Gateway Pakistan, with the support of Federal Ministry of Health, Ministry of Health, Sindh, and the sponsors, Abbott Laboratories of Pakistan, Adamjee Insurance Company, and GlaxoSmithKline. The 2-day Conferences are comprised on 3 different topics. “Quality in Healthcare”, on the 1st day followed by, “Updates in Vaccination” and “Advancement in Dermatology” on the 2nd day.
Capt. Dr. Abdul Majid, Special Secretary, Public Health, Sindh, on the occasion said that, Health ASIA is the leading and only UFI (Paris) Approved, Regional Event on Health & Pharmaceutical Industry of Pakistan on the national calendar, which provides enormous opportunities of learning, Information sharing, mutual cooperation and combined ventures to all the stakeholders in the Asian Health sector. He said that although Pakistan’s Pharmaceutical and Health Care sectors are expanding and evolving rapidly, about half the population still has no access to awareness of general health Care & modern technology. This presents a challenge and an opportunity to the government. This conference and other such efforts on public/private level, therefore play a role to provide a platform where health Industry Professionals, Doctors, Health Insurers, and other stakeholders will exchange views, highlight problems & present ideas and strategies for future development of this sector.
The Chief Guest further added that, every part of the health care system must be involved with a strong commitment at providing a compassionate, ethical and accessible general and specialized care to the community with respect towards patients and their families.
On the occasion, Salman Burney, MD GlaxoSmithKline, said that Pakistan has a very vibrant and forward looking Pharma Industry. The National pharma industry has shown a progressive growth over the years, particularly over the last one decade. The industry has invested substantially to upgrade itself in the last few years and today the majority industry is following Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP), in accordance with the domestic as well as international Guidance. Currently the industry has the capacity to manufacture a variety of product ranging from simple pills to sophisticated Biotech, Oncology and Value Added Generic compounds.
Dr. Sarmad Maqbool, Abbott Laboratories Pakistan, Dr. Asima Zahid, Health Sciences, Institute of Business Management, Ali Haider, Asst. GM, Health Insurance, Adamjee Insurance Company Ltd., also highlighted the point that Health care is becoming the industry of the future as the world’s population lives longer. Until recently, investors focused on aging trends in developed economies, where life expectancies were generally higher and household incomes were sufficient to support health care spending.National public health is a recent innovation in Pakistan. Improvements in health care have been hampered by scarce resources and are difficult to coordinate nationally because health care remains a provincial responsibility rather than a central government one. Until the early 1980s, local governing bodies were in charge of health services.
The speakers stressed that the Pakistan Pharmaceutical Industry is a success story, providing high quality essential drugs at affordable prices to Millions. Technologically, strong and self reliant National Pharmaceutical Industry is not only playing a key role in promoting and sustaining development in the vital field of medicine within the country, but is also well set to take on the international markets. But in the given circumstances this industry needs strong support by the government and relieve on various fronts as that of manufacturing & exports.
The 6th Health Asia 2010 Int’l Conference will continue till tomorrow. Its worth mentioning, that Ecommerce Gateway Pakistan has come a long way and Health Asia, Int’l Conference & Exhibition, since its inception, has been serving as a regional forum for deliberations to the local and foreign investors, industrialists, academia, and entrepreneurs.

In short, the conference delivers to participants, the right balance between Health industries players, senior decision makers and practitioners.
