En­gi­neer­ing Week Pak­istan 2012

Enterprise - - Promotion -

‘ En­gi­neer­ing Week Pak­istan 2012’ will take place from Jan­uary 12 to 15, 2012 at Expo Cen­tre, Karachi. The En­gi­neer­ing in­dus­try is at the core of de­vel­op­ment and growth for ex­pand­ing the econ­omy of Pak­istan. Along with con­tribut­ing about 18.5 per­cent of the over­all GDP, this sec­tor is play­ing a lead­ing role in coun­ter­ing the ef­fects of re­cent global eco­nomic tur­moil by en­gi­neer­ing ex­pan­sion of the in­dus­trial base in Pak­istan, thus cre­at­ing new spheres of op­por­tu­nity. In this re­gard, the govern­ment has ear­marked US $37.88 mil­lion (2010-11) to fa­cil­i­tate the process.

The lo­cal in­dus­tries are pro­gres­sively adopt­ing ad­vance­ments in tech­nolo­gies and in­no­va­tions, el­e­vat­ing their stan­dards to be­come glob­ally com­pet­i­tive. To­tal ma­chin­ery imports of US $4.17 bil­lion in 2010 and a to­tal in­vest­ment of over US $50 bil­lion in en­gi­neer­ing sec­tor of Pak­istan over the last 5 years speak vol­umes of the im­mense po­ten­tial in­her­ent in this sec­tor, a tes­ti­mo­nial that the sec­tor is the driv­ing force be­hind Pak­istan’s surge to­wards the ranks of in­dus­trial na­tions.

En­gi­neer­ing Week Pak­istan (EWP) is the well-oiled ma­chine of Pak­istan’s in­dus­trial re­nais­sance. It has been a sig­nif­i­cant ex­hi­bi­tion for the in­dus­trial sec­tor, in par­tic­u­lar for the Process En­gi­neer­ing, Elec­tri­cal and Elec­tron­ics, Foundry, Au­to­mo­tive, and Ma­te­rial Fab­ri­ca­tion in­dus­tries. EWP has proved to be the en­gi­neer­ing high­way, pro­vid­ing a fast lane to the rapidly evolv­ing tech­no­log­i­cal marvels of the dy­nam­ics of global in­dus­tries.

The 6th edi­tion of En­gi­neer­ing Week Pak­istan fea­tures two ded­i­cated exhibitions FAMTECH (In­ter­na­tional Foundry, Au­to­mo­tive and Metal Work­ing Ex­hi­bi­tion) and PRETECH (In­ter­na­tional Process En­gi­neer­ing, Elec­tri­cal and Elec­tron­ics Ex­hi­bi­tion). Both are poised to show­case a wide ar­ray of lat­est equip­ment, ma­chin­ery, sys­tems and so­lu­tions to cater to the en­tire spec­trum of en­gi­neer­ing in­dus­try in Pak­istan.

With over 160 ex­hibitors, rep­re­sen­ta­tion from 10 coun­tries and de­but of Czech Repub­lic in Pak­istan with a ded­i­cated Czech pav­il­ion, En­gi­neer­ing Week Pak­istan 2012 is bound to set a new in­ter­na­tional bench­mark among B2B fa­cil­i­ta­tion events. Com­pa­nies from au­to­mo­tive, metal work­ing, ma­chin­ery and tools, foundry, elec­tri­cal and elec­tronic equip­ment, min­ing, ex­trac­tion and raw ma­te­ri­als pro­cess­ing, process en­gi­neer­ing and au­toma­tion will be among the ex­hibitors, along­side rep­re­sen­ta­tion from ce­ment, fer­til­iz­ers, chem­i­cals, phar­ma­ceu­ti­cals, food, su­gar, min­ing, tex­tile, leather, plas­tic and pack­ag­ing, pa­per and pa­per board in­dus­tries.

More vis­i­tors are ex­pected to be at the event this year than pre­vi­ous years, com­pris­ing more than 9,000 in­dus­try pro­fes­sion­als and trade vis­i­tors.

The ex­hi­bi­tion is keenly sup­ported by many lo­cal, national and govern­ment bod­ies and trade as­so­ci­a­tions. Amongst them are Min­istry of In­dus­tries, Min­istry of Pro­duc­tion, Pak­istan En­gi­neer­ing Coun­cil, Board of In­vest­ment, En­gi­neer­ing De­vel­op­ment Board, Pak­istan Au­to­mo­bile Spare Parts, Im­porters and Deal­ers As­so­ci­a­tion, and Pak­istan Stone De­vel­op­ment Com­pany
