Convener PAS 2022 Mr. Zain Shariq briefed the audience on how the event is going to take place and its importance for Pakistan’s economy and the automotive industry. As the economy of Pakistan is growing, it is important to hold such shows so that there are opportunities for the companies and businesses in Pakistan to showcase their capabilities, he said.
“It is extremely important for the industry to participate and showcase the value that’s being added in this country, it is equally as important for the consumers and government decisionmakers to attend such shows to understand the level of engineering that’s being undertaken in Pakistan.
We already have a strong showing in terms of booking from the OEMs, new entrants and old, and the vending industry. This is a good sign as the industry needs to put a strong foot forward in the post corona world.”
As a large number of new entrants have entered the market, a strong showing of diverse models is expected at the show. Several electric vehicle companies are already on board, and a few new model launches will also be in the offing.
PAAPAM has always played a pivotal role for provision of business opportunities and growth of Auto Engineering Industry as a whole. At PAS 2022, PAAPAM has established a substantive business generation model for everyone including PAAPAM members who are not exhibiting and the representatives of the allied industries.
As well as supporting the industry the show also seeks to engage students with an engineering and an arts competition.
