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.

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.

ITCN Asia 2010

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.

// In addition to Quality certifications and standardization processes, the industry requires Human Resource, Space and Bandwidth. We have an approved Public Sector Development project under which training programs, tailored to the specific needs of the Industry, are implemented by the Pakistan Software Export Board (PSEB). In addition to this, several other HR development programs are planned through the Telecom R&D Fund, where existing IT graduates are provided opportunity to seek apprenticeship and become more productive. Higher Education Commission created stronger Industry-Academia linkages and took other steps so that the quality of fresh graduates was improved.

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.

Speech of the Chief Guest Dr. Mirza Ikhtiar Baig,

Federal Advisor on Textile, Ministry of Textile Industry,

Government of Pakistan at Inauguration Ceremony of

7th Textile Asia 2010 Int’l Exhibition

at Karachi Expo Centre

President Ecommerce Gateway, Dr. Khursheed Nizam, Executive Director Ecommerce Gateway, Mr. Sohail Aziz, Foreign Delegates distinguished guests, My Media Friends, ladies & gentlemen

Assalam-o-Alaikum

Its my privilege to be present at the Inauguration Ceremony of 7th Textile Asia 2010 Int’l Exhibition, the annual Textile and Garment Machinery Show of Textile Industry of Pakistan.

I am delighted to learn that more than 212 foreign delegates are attending Textile Asia this year. I welcome the foreign delegates and encourage them to capitalize from the immense unexplored business opportunities Pakistan offers. 349 international brands from 37 countries are being demonstrated at Textile Asia.

Textile Asia is a landmark event that is in line with the thrust of the government’s agenda to promote investment in the Textile sector of Pakistan. This event fully reflects the investment potential Pakistan offers for modernization of the textile sector and the scale of international participation reflects their confidence in the potential for business and trade in Pakistan; in the present leadership and the future of Pakistan.

This is mainly due to the laxity towards the promotion of value added sector. Pakistan should learn a lesson from Bangladesh, which, by importing yarn and fabrics from Pakistan and other countries, has increased the export volume of Textiles made ups. The new five year Textile Policy (2009-2014) focus to promote Value added sector in Textiles.

Distinguished Guests and delegates;

Pakistan is transforming itself from being a stagnant economy to fast-paced emergent economy as a result of the structural reforms introduced by the present government in the areas of investment, business and trade in

addition to covering social, political, judiciary and security. The present government’s policies of regularization, privatization and liberalization have given a boost to the industrial and commercial activities in all sectors alike. The results of such initiatives are visible in the form of these successful international exhibitions organized by Ecommerce Gateway.

The geographical location of Pakistan warrants unique proposition to make investments here. As Pakistan lies at crossroads to South Asia, Gulf and Central Asia, it gives direct market access to more than half a population of the world that lives here.

Investors enjoy full legal protection for their investment; have 100 per cent equity with no bar on transfer of dividends which is a proof that Pakistan has one of the most congenial business environments in the region. It is noteworthy that 500 to 600 foreign firms are operating in Pakistan.

Distinguished Guests and delegates;

Now, I would like to draw your attention to what opportunities await for you in the textile sector of Pakistan and will present a brief of the initiatives taken by the present government to facilitate investment in this important sector of Pakistan.

I would like to clarify that no Pakistani Industries are shifting to Bangladesh. The Bangladeshi currency is now stronger compared to the currencies of many countries in the region and their textile & apparel exporters are losing competitiveness due to the strong taka against the dollar. Furthermore they are also facing shortage of natural gas for the industries. Recently they have cut gas supply to their Fertilizer Industries.

LITTLE ABOUT OUR TEXTILE INDUSTRY

The present Global Scenario of Textile Industry with particular reference to the position of Pakistan in the International Textile Market is given here for the interest of our readers. The demand for textiles in the world is around $18 trillion, which is likely to be increased by 6.5%. China is the leading Textile exporter of the world’s total exports of US$ 400 billion. Country wise major market shares of the textile exporting countries are: China: $ 55 billion, Hong Kong:$ 38 billion, Korea: $ 35 billion, Taiwan:$ 16 billion, Indonesia and Pakistan:$ 9 billion.

Though Pakistan has emerged as one of the major cotton textile product suppliers in the world market with a share of world yarn trade of about 30% and cotton fabric about 8%, having total export of $ 7.4 billion which accounts for only 1.2% of the over all share. Out of this Cotton fabric is 0.02%, Made-ups is 0.18% and Garments is 0.15%.

To facilitate business and trade, Pakistan is aggressively taking up with EU and USA to give duty free market access to Pakistani textile products and Honorable Prime Minister of Pakistan is going to Brussels this month for an important meeting with EU in this regard. Pakistan has also raised this issue of market access with US in the recent Pak-US Strategic Dialogues. Moreover, Pakistan is also strengthening economic co-operation with regional countries and have already signed FTA with China and Sri Lanka.

Textile sector is the backbone of our economy having 55% of our total exports and 38% job creation in the manufacturing sector and holds great importance as it significantly contributes to our exports and foreign exchange earnings. Keeping the said opportunities in view, modernization and up gradation of Textile sector is important to improve the quality of value added products Pakistan exports and to make the country better equipped for competing in the world. In addition, it would also help create jobs; alleviate poverty and assist the present government fight terrorism and extremism.

OUR STRENGHTS ARE:

  • 4th largest producer of Cotton Yarn and Cloth in the World after China which is No. 1.
  • We have signed MOU with Monsanto for BT cotton to improve the yield per acre which is now low and at 13th position in the world.Ranks 2nd in export of yarn and 3rd in export of cloth.
  • We have large spinning capacity – with major part of European, Japanese & Chinese Machinery.
  • Ample availability of cheap labour.
  • Good markets for products.
  • Large domestic market.

WHEREAS WEAKNESSES ARE:

  • Low productivity resulting in high labour costs.
  • Limited skills development facilities.
  • Low value addition
  • Small product and market base
  • Little Research and Development

GOVT. INITIATIVES:

  • Textile City in Karachi
  • Garment Cities in Karachi, Lahore and Faisalabad.
  • Industrial Park in Karachi
  • Dedicated Economic Zones

The present government has identified textile as a key priority area and is making all possible efforts to set the right policies and incentives that encourages private sector investment in value addition and expansion in a bid to gain wider access to the international markets. We have fixed an ambitious target of US $ 25 Billion till 2014 in the new five year Textile Policy with 2 times value addition target.

Pakistan has also embarked on a wide-ranging initiative to increase its attractiveness to foreign investors in the textile sector. The new Textile Policy 2009-2014 announced by the government of Pakistan allows various incentives including concessional financing (LTF) to encourage capital investment in value added textile sector. The government of Pakistan has also withdrawn custom duty on import of plant and machinery by the manufacturing industries and working hard to get duty free market access for our textile products for EU and US markets. Our Textile Industry has invested US $ 6 Billion under BMR during 1999 to 2003.

Page 3 of 4

Distinguished guests and delegates;

I would like to invite the participants in joint ventures to take advantage of investment friendly environment in Pakistan and exploit the untapped potential textile sector offers as we gear up for increasing our share of value added textile products in the world market.

I assure you that the government of Pakistan will leave no stone unturned to provide an environment that guarantees security of investment made in Pakistan.

In the end, I would like to appreciate the efforts of Dr. Khursheed Nizam & the team of Ecommerce Gateway for organizing this wonderful event. Organization of such exhibitions not only plays an important role in furthering present government’s agenda to attract foreign investment and promote business but also highlights the corrective image of Pakistan as a safe and secure place for business.

I wish Textile Asia 2010 a great success and Foreign Delegates a pleasant stay in Pakistan.

Thank you.

Pakistan – Paindabad.

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.

ITCN ASIA 2010

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.
In addition to Quality certifications and standardization processes, the industry requires Human Resource, Space and Bandwidth. We have an approved Public Sector Development project under which training programs, tailored to the specific needs of the Industry, are implemented by the Pakistan Software Export Board (PSEB). In addition to this, several other HR development programs are planned through the Telecom R&D Fund, where existing IT graduates are provided opportunity to seek apprenticeship and become more productive. Higher Education Commission created stronger Industry-Academia linkages and took other steps so that the quality of fresh graduates was improved.

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.
