In the upcoming three years, Pakistan will have its own medical industry and the US will be its major client, said Federal Minister for Science and Technology, Fawad Chaudhry.
Chaudhry responded to a tweet by the US embassy which announced the arrival of 100 ventilators in Pakistan. The minister replied that the US gesture of friendships is appreciated. He added that Pakistan is also exporting sanitizers and PPEs to America.
“We are already exporting sanitizers and PPE’s to the USA, USA gesture of friendship is appreciated. However, in the next three years, Pakistan will have its own big medical/ electromagnetic industry. I have no doubts that the USA will be our major client…” he tweeted.
Last week, the minister paid tribute to Pakistani engineers and scientists for making the export quality ‘Made in Pakistan’ ventilators. He announced, in a speech at the National Assembly, that the first batch of the equipment will be made available to the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA).
