I am honored to have been elected to serve as Chairman of the association for 2021-22. The Association has a history of outstanding Board Chairs, I will strive to emulate the integrity, vision and leadership of the past leadership.
Our Association serves more than 350 members and affiliates of our member enterprises through our large and active business network services to promote economic vitality by helping to create and sustain a vibrant climate to support business growth and knowledge.
I congratulate all the members for PAAPAM being the pioneer Trade Association in the country certified for ISO 9001-2015, additionally including the development of Corporate, Legal, Financial and HR modules to streamline our operations, for ensuring that the services provided to our members are further value-added.
These are challenging times for our businesses due to frequent and skyrocketing increases of all inputs, devaluation of PKR, shrinking profits & cash flow of vendors ;due to higher demand, at lower profitability.
We are engaging with the OEMs and Government on related issues for early resolution of the matters. Continuing the legacy of my predecessors through an evolved image of association from a trade body to a business support organisation (BSO) , I look forward to closely working with all the stakeholders towards the betterment of the Auto Parts Sector, with the support of highly vibrant MC and experienced colleagues for Another major area that we would like to focus my attention on ; is our export sector. We would like to develop and strengthen our international relationships which have been made after years of hard work. Export Orientation will be the key to introducing new and upgraded technology for entering into new markets
I am sure that new initiative of Business Development Committee (BDC)will create further business opportunities for our members with, Defence organisations, Pakistan Railways, SSGPL, SNGPL, Wapda etc ; contributing to foreign exchange savings through import substitution.
May Allah give me the strength to perform as per our prestigious members' expectations!
