It is truly commendable that the Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce and Industry is organizing its 43rd Exports Awards ceremony in recognition of the services of exporters of Pakistan. Over the years, this recognition has played a significant role in enhancing the confidence of exporters towards the export growth and in earning of foreign exchange for the country.

FPCCI Export Awards are a symbol of pride both at the national and international levels. The ceremony provides a good opportunity to the exporters to analyze emerging trends of the global market and devise new strategies for augmentation and diversification of exports.

The Government of Pakistan is striving to promote an export culture in the country by providing the necessary facilities to exporters. Therefore, our exporters and manufacturers must exploit all available resources to meet the global challenges. For the diversification of exports, we need knowledge, networks, innovation and information. The promotion of research and development activities at the industrial level can help us in achieving the status of an industrialized state.

I hope that FPCCI will continue this practice in days to come. On this occasion, I congratulate FPCCI on its devotion and sincere efforts to promote the exports of our country. I also extend my heartiest felicitations to all Award Winners on their outstanding performance and contribution in surpassing the export target. I hope that the exporters will continue their efforts for the prosperity of Pakistan.
