Powerful pictures

Once again the Foto8 Summershow is upon us and with it comes a chance to view some compelling new work.


Photographs adorn the walls at Host Gallery just off Old Street in London like some weird giant 3D jigsaw.


You can see Sebastian Meyer’s photo of Libyan rebels ducking for cover as an explosion rips in the distance next to a large still life picture by Uri Shapira of chemical reactions.


Shuffle along a little and there’s a picture of a fascist flag by Paolo Marchetti next to a frame from Lydia Goldblatt’s series, All flesh is. There’s something for everyone here.

The show comprises 150 images that have been selected by the Foto8 editorial team from more than 2,800 entries, and as you can guess by now, there’s no set theme. Photographers were invited to submit recent pictures that engage or challenger the viewer, with the resulting mix of styles and subjects all crammed onto the walls of the gallery.


Oddly enough it works very well. Though it can be overwhelming at times, it’s a treat to pick through the shots and find those that touch a nerve, raise a smile or that are harder to digest. It’s one show you really have to see up close and not just in the brochure or on the internet.


One other advantage of attending in person is that visitors to the show are able to vote for their preferred picture in the People’s Choice award. There is also a select band of judges who are also choosing their best in show, the result of which is announced at the launch party on 8 July.


Many of the pictures on show are part of larger projects. This one by Hannah Jones is part of a series titled, To Happiness, Endlessly. It was taken during a road trip without a planned route, one where the photographer recorded what she calls, “disconnected experiences”. Well worth a look.

Another single picture taken from a set is this one by Natalie Naccache from her powerful series Kteer Jeune (Very Young), which focuses on the beauty industry in Lebanon, exploring the availability of treatment for young children as well as the growing trend of plastic surgery.

There are also news pictures. Alongside a fair few shots of combat from current conflicts there is this one by Antonio Olmos that attracted my attention. It’s a photograph that when seen as a large print offers so much and is rich in detail. It shows the friends of Negus McClean gathering near the spot where he was murdered on 11 April 2011. He was the fourth teenager to be stabbed to death in London this year. A very powerful picture on many levels.

Christopher Capozziello’s photograph in the exhibition is of his brother Nick, who has cerebral palsy. On his website Christopher states: “I would like you to meet my brother. I have been drawn to photographing him for as long as I have been making pictures. The time I spend with him, looking through my camera, has forced me to ask questions about suffering, and faith and why anyone is born with disease.”


He also states: “I want explanations as to why some suffer and others do not. I want to know why some get better while others get worse. Is this fate or is this chance or is it just bad luck?” I hadn’t heard of his work prior to this show, and that’s my loss, but I’m making up for it now.

Daewoong Kim’s pictures exploring the impact of computer technology on social interaction by Korean students in London could be seen as a tough one to nail visually. Yet his pictures are beautifully lit and this one conjures a feeling of isolation and draws us into a story, though we have to look outside the exhibition to find out more.

A photograph by Chris Craymer that is reminiscent of Richard Avedon’s American West series stands out from those around it, but then his work is always worth spending time with. As you can see the show offers a wide variety of pictures and there should be plenty to to appeal to all palates.

The exhibition can be seen from 9 July to 12 August 2011 at Host Gallery, 1 Honduras Street, London.

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.

PRESS RELEASE






Capt. Dr. Abdul Majid, Special Secretary, Public Health Sindh, inaugurates 6th Health Asia 2010, Int’l Conferences & Exhibition here at Karachi Expo Center, Today

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. It has proved to be the best across the entire spectrum of Health Care in the South Asia as it integrates delivering the best interactive opportunities to participants and an ideal environment to the audiences. In short, the conference delivers to participants, the right balance between Health industries players, senior decision makers and practitioners.
