KARACHI:(APS) Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said Monday that Pakistan’s enterprising defence sector has succeeded in creating a place for itself, despite limited resources.
The premier was inaugurating the four-day 8th biennial International Defence Exhibition and Seminar (IDEAS) 2014 which started at Expo Center in Karachi.
“When resources were hurdled, our designers relied on innovation. Our endeavour was to consistently improve upon the basis technologies employed in a weapon system and to give it added dimensions and capabilities,” the premier said.
“I take this opportunity to note with satisfaction that IDEAS has emerged as a major defence industry show in the region,” he said.
“It showcases a wide spectrum of defence systems, ranging from widely-improved versions of the equipment used and while also inviting attention to prospective developments in the times to come.”
