I would like to welcome the delegates, exhibitors and visitors to PEEF-2012. PEEF exhibitions is an important element of our export strategy. On one hand, it provides our electrical and electronic manufacturers an opportunity to display the complete range of their products at a scale that is not possible when participating in exhibitions abroad, while on the other, it also ensures close interaction between local manufacturers and delegates from our friendly countries. This platform also serves as an excellent forum for discourse on electrical and electronic related issues of common interest. It is a matter of great pride for Pakistan that, after successfully meeting the domestic requirements, our electrical and electronic manufacturing industries have already moved towards marketing their products at the international level. We are now actively working towards marketing more complex products. I would also like to pay tributes to the Badar Expo Solutions (BXSS) for bringing such a major event and organising it at par with international standards.
