01 Feb 2020
  • Fawad says such tax structures are recommended that people from all over the world will seek Pakistan for technology, especially biotechnology.
  • Unlike US and China, Pakistan didn’t work on developing a civil-military interface, says Chaudhry.

Federal Minister for Science and Technology Chaudhry Fawad Hussain will present a $30 billion export plan of non-traditional exports before Prime Minister Imran Khan this week.

In a series of tweets, the federal minister said that back in 1970s Pakistan was far ahead of most third world countries in the field science and technology. “However, the tragedy of East Pakistan in 1971, shift our focus entirely on defense,” he added.

Chaudhry said that unlike United States and China, Pakistan didn’t work on developing a civil-military interface, which would have allowed the transfer of military research into civil and vice versa. “The whole effort is now to create a system that will establish the civil-military research interface,” he said.

The minister further said that such tax structures are recommended that people from all over the world will seek Pakistan for technology, especially biotechnology. “If the government puts its focus on science and technology, in 25 years, we will jump from developing countries to developed countries,” he tweeted.

Just days ago, the federal minister announced that Pakistan would begin its search for the country's first astronaut this year. “We are hopeful to send Pakistan first manned mission to space by late 2022 or early 2023," he said.
