    Karachi to host IDEAS-2002 in September

    Karachi to host IDEAS-2002 in September

    ISLAMABAD: President General Pervez Musharraf on Tuesday approved the plan for holding of International Defence Exhibition and Seminar (IDEAS) for 2002 being organised in Karachi from September 16 to 20.

    The president accorded approval during his visit to the Defence Export Promotion Organisation (DEPO) in Rawalpindi. He went around the display centre of the DEPO established next to the General Headquarters.

    The president was received by Secretary Defence Production Division Air Marshal (retd) Zahid Anis and Director General DEPO Major-General Syed Ali Hamid. After the success of Pakistan's first defence exhibition IDEAS-2000, the president had directed the Ministry of Defence to establish an organisation with its primary mission to enhance defence exports, thus offsetting the country's outlay on defence.

    In keeping with the governments emphasis on austerity, the DEPO has been established from within the defence budget and manned by professionals drawn from the armed forces. The president toured the display centre where he was briefed by the marketing directors of the public and private defence manufacturing organisations on their products and existing potential defence exports.

    The display centre covers 900 square meters and contains a wide range of products developed and manufactured by Pakistan's defence industries. The president appreciated the export activities of the private sector and said it is in the interest of the country and the armed forces that the private sector should be more involved in defence manufacturing and export.

    During the tour, President Musharraf was accompanied by the chairman Joint Chiefs Staff Committee, the chairman Export Promotion Bureau (EPB), the service chiefs, the secretary Defence and the secretary Commerce. After the tour of the display centre, the president was given a briefing, on Pakistan's Second Defence Exhibition and Seminar IDEAS-2002, to be held at Karachi from September 16-20 2002.

                  He has been holding ITCN conferences before too, where all the tech students and companies in Pakistan get a chance to show their talent... No leader ever did that before, great work by Musharraf...
