Ad­dress­ing the sign­ing cer­e­mony, De­fence Pro­duc­tion Min­is­ter Rana Tan­veer Hussain said the col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween the two min­istries was the be­gin­ning of a new era of in­creased co­op­er­a­tion for the tech­nol­ogy and sci­en­tific ad­vance­ment.

The cer­e­mony was at­tended by se­nior of­fi­cers from both the min­istries.

“This is a pos­i­tive ini­tia­tive taken by the two minis- tries, as it will help de­velop more qual­ity prod­ucts for both the de­fence and the civil com­mer­cial sides.”

Ac­cord­ing to the frame­work, the two min­istries would have ex­ten­sive meet­ings of rel­e­vant teams for tar­get­ing the ar­eas of mu­tual in­ter­ests in­clud­ing mar­ket­ing, pro­mo­tion, sale/pur­chase of the jointly de­vel­oped prod­ucts and tech­nolo­gies.

Be­sides, the con­cerned or­ga­ni­za­tions would be bound to sub­mit a monthly progress re­port to their re­spec­tive min­istries and the fo­cal per­sons.

“The frame­work will en­sure a con­tin­u­ous and ef­fi­cient work­ing re­la­tion­ship be­tween the two min­istries,” the min­is­ter said.

He said the present gov­ern­ment was fully com­mit­ted to take new ini­tia­tives in the right di­rec­tion for progress and pros­per­ity of the coun­try.

The frame­work of col­lab­o­ra­tion doc­u­ment was signed by Sec­re­tary Min­istry of Science and Tech­nol­ogy Fazal Ab­bas Maken and Sec­re­tary Min­istry of De­fence Pro­duc­tion Lt. Gen­eral (Retd.) Syed Muham­mad Owais.
