Senior Vice Chairman
It has been a great honor for me to serve as the Senior Vice Chairman, PAPGAI and serving the industry members while voicing their concerns with the relevant authorities to promote an environment of business growth. In order to get awareness and development for the industry, PAPGAI has been holding PRINTPAK exhibition for years alternatively in Karachi and Lahore. The exhibition allows the industry leaders to connect with their relevant audiences promoting market and business growth. In addition to this, PRINTPAK conduct workshops on different fields led by experts. These workshops allow the recipients to enhance their knowledge in their respective fields.
PAPGAI’s initiative taking ability in the past for the betterment of the industry is unparalleled and with its resilient approach of moving forward, the association took the lead in collaborating with Sindh Board of Technical Education to launch a program, “Recognize Prior Learning”. Under this initiative, the already employed skilled workforce in the industry will be provided with an opportunity to go through a 3 day workshop with an examination at the end to acquire a recognized certificate. This will not only organize the domestic talent as per their specialization for the industry but will also create an opportunity for them to serve abroad as industry’s ambassadors.
The association provided the platform to State Bank Pakistan to disseminate information regarding SME schemes among its members. This awareness will not only help the industry grow but will also provide a fair opportunity to SMEs to contribute their share towards the national economy.
I urge the Printing & Graphic Art community to come forward and join us at PRINTPAK 2022. Success of this event will surely be the success of this community as a whole. In the end, I would like to thank all my associates and colleagues who have worked hard in organizing this event.
