Ladies and Gentlemen
A very Happy New Year to all my fellow PAAPAM members, their families, and the entire Pakistani Community. I hope and pray that this year brings peace to our families, success to our businesses, and happiness to our lives. As one year draws to a close, we welcome the new year with open arms and hope that it brings with it great new opportunities and increased enthusiasm amongst us all to grow, succeed, and work towards the betterment of our beloved country.
It must be noted that the year 2017 will be a year of immense competition and it is imperative that we set out our plan to move ahead with the numerous possibilities that will come our way. This year, we aim to work closely with the Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) and hope that this will allow us to greatly grow as manufacturers of auto-parts. Not only this, we hope to be assisted by these OEMs so they may aid us in increasing our quality and production of auto-parts and so we may be able to stand toe-to-toe with some of the world’s leading exporters of auto-parts. Additionally, we should also strive towards improving ourselves and take the government onboard with the improvement of the auto-part industry, and regularly hold meetings with them as per the recently introduced Auto Policy.
Furthermore, we must have the belief that to move forward and grow, we must dedicated a fair amount of our resources on Research and Development. It is absolutely necessary for us to have strong research capabilities so that we can start developing auto-parts that are in-line with the quality of APM
