A nation can only progress, when they are independent from foreign reliance for its major projects. This will only happen when we are ready to embrace our own human as well as natural resources in a befitting manner. Rana Tanveer Hussain, Federal Minister for Science & Technology was addressing the participants of inaugural session of one-day mini-symposium workshop of prioritization of research and development to promote academia-industry partnership being convened at the Shaheed Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto Medical University (PIMS).
While addressing the participants, the Federal Minister for Science & Technology appreciated the idea put forward by Dr. Javed, (PIMS) to carry a workshop on promoting academia-industrial relationship.

Here comes the opportunity where academic research can be of ultimate resource to assess and meet the demand-driven industrial requirements.
The Federal Minister for Science & Technology, Rana Tanveer Hussain encouraged the PIMS management to bring forward practical research avenues and make a liaison with the Ministry of Science & Technology for establishing links with industrial sector so as to envisage the economical as well as self-reliant industrial growth.
