is my great pleasure to acknowledge that Pakistan Foundry Association has successfully organized 4 International Foundry Congress and Exhibition held on Dec 05-06 2012, at hotel Pearl Continental Lahore, Pakistan.
It is a matter of satisfaction to thank all foreign and local delegates and exhibitors who traveled especially to participate in this mega event. This year we had international participation from Italy, UK, Germany, Netherlands, Turkey, China, India and Japan in larger number in addition to the local participants. I acknowledge their encouraging response and would like to see them again in the 5 IFCE. I regret the inconvenience to all who could not attend due to visa problem.
The participation of eminent academicians and technologists from abroad who have discussed advances and technical opportunities available in the world. The technical papers presented by the speakers from Italy, Germany, India, UK, Turkey and Pakistan have provided knowledge to our foundry men, academia and students of engineering universities.
It is encouraging for me to note that many of our guests have fruitful visits to local foundry and engineering industries during their stay. I invite foundry men in the world to visit our engineering industry.
The foundry industry looks forward to expanding its manufacturing capacities in technology and coverage to the local and global market, particularly the Auto and Agricultural Tractors markets. We are competitively priced and are conscious of international standards requirements.
I am delighted to mention that Foundry Service Center has been completed for its operations and shortly the training courses on different technologies will begin. I especially thank UET and SMEDA for the support extended to build FSC. I also acknowledge the services of TEVTA in the development of Foundry Training School where workers and students have been trained and the first batch of 25 students is working in the relevant foundry industries now. I hope both training institutes will help in producing skilled workers for better quality production to meet international standards.
I thank once again the executive committee and Mr. Abdul Rashid secretary of Pakistan Foundry Association for their hard work to gain the attention of foundry industry in the world.
