President Mamnoon Hussain has called for concerted efforts to promote and market Pakistan’s defence products in the international market to bolster exports and strengthen the economy.

The President said this while talking to Minister for Defence Production Rana Tanveer Hussain who called on him at the Aiwan-e-Sadr, Islamabad on Tuesday.

President Mamnoon said that Pakistani defence products are of highest international standards and are comparable to the products of the developed countries while having the comparative advantage of being cheaper.

The President noted with satisfaction that many countries are evincing keen interest in purchase of Pakistani defence products and said that with proactive marketing Pakistan can earn substantial foreign exchange through sale of the defence items. The President stated that Pakistan’s defence has become impregnable due to self-sufficiency in production of defence equipment
