I am pleased to present the FPCCI Export Awards Souvenir on the occasion of 43rd FPCCI Export Awards Ceremony. The FPCCI has regularly been organizing Export Awards since 1976. The FPCCI Export Awards is an acknowledgement of the excellent performance of the exporters and a service to the country by earning valuable foreign exchange every year. I am glad that the Export Awards have today gained international recognition and are also seen as source of encouragement by our business community.

Though prevailing conditions of uncertainty domestically as well as in the international markets are creating hurdles to carry out commercial activities at home and abroad, but the efforts of our businessmen who still made possible to successfully showcase Pakistani products in the international market is highly commendable.

I am grateful to the Honorable President of Islamic Republic of Pakistan, Dr. Arif Alvi for sparing time to confer awards on leading exporters, which is a reflection of the incumbent government's desire to promote exports.

I am thankful to all the Office Bearers, Senior Business Leaders, Members of the Executive Committee, Chairman and Members of the 43rd FPCCI Export Awards Committee and FPCCI Secretariat for their contribution in organizing this mega annual event.

I wish the winners every success for the future and hope that they will make us proud by flying the flag of Pakistan even higher in international markets.
