Pakistan - Solid steps needed to upgrade foundry industry

FAISALABAD: Faisalabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FCCI) President Engineer Rizwan Ashraf has said that foundry is the second largest sector of our local industry after textile and needs immediate steps for its upgradation to bring it at par with international standards.
He was addressing an introductory sitting in connection with the 5th International Foundry Congress and Exhibition to be held at Lahore under the auspices of Pakistan Foundry Association.

Engr Rizwan termed metallurgy as mother of the industrial sector and said that Pakistan lags far behind in this sector and we must make immediate, result-oriented and conscious efforts for its planned and scientific development.
