Federal Minister for Science and Technology Chaudhry Fawad Hussain Tuesday announced to develop a state-of-the-art ‘Bio Science Park’ in Jehlum which will be a biggest ever park in Asia. He was speaking at a signing ceremony for technical collaboration between Ministry for Science and Technology and Alsons Group and Tatsuno Corporation, Japan to develop ‘Software and Automation Solutions’.
The minister said usage of technology contributes to the success of any business but development of this sector was neglected in the past. The minister welcomed emerging Japanese technology in the fields of Oil and Gas and recalled, ‘We only heard of Japanese technology everywhere in the country when we were growing up’. Philips is a big name and its contribution in developing and manufacturing lights in Pakistan is in the benefit of the country.
He said the present government has taken effective measures for curbing malpractices of money laundering and under-invoicing and opened new avenues in import business. The minister underlined the need for producing new jobs through promoting private sector. ‘Everyone in the country wants government job which is not possible for the government to manage so there is need to boost the private sector and businesses to create more and more jobs’, he stressed.
