It gives me immense pleasure to witness splendid edition of PEEF-2012, the region's leading exhibition. I congratulate the entire electrical and electronic industry of Pakistan for the success and recognition of PEEF. I would also like to commend the efforts of Badar Expo Solutions (BXSS) for successfully holding of PEEF 2012 to show case the best of Pakistan's electrical and electronics sector and also promote international co-operation in the field. From PEEF, the platform has come a long way and become a global event. The participation of various countries in the event speaks volumes about the increasing global recognition and admiration that PEEF Expo has won from across the world. I today feel proud seeing the international recognition, which PEEF has achieved. I would like to extend a very warm welcome to the visiting dignitaries, foreign exhibitors and trade visitors for PEEF-2012. I wish them a comfortable and professionally rewarding stay in Pakistan.
