ISLAMABAD: Senate Standing Committee on Industries expressed its concern over the unsatisfactory performance of Pakistan Stone Development Company (PASDEC) and said that despite repeatedly issuing directions to the company, it did not take measures to minimize wastage of precious stones by using modern machinery in marble mines.

Officials of PASDEC informed the committee that number of machineries were being increased at factories and currently 26 machinerse were installed in six factories.

The committee was informed that PASDEC had also written a letter to Board of Investment requesting them to also include Marble and Granite sector in China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

The meeting was also attended by Senators Kulsoom Perveen, Khalida Perveen, Malik Najam Ul Hassan, Taj Haider and Khanzada Khan.
