COVER STORY
PAKISTAN DAY 

In the post September 2001 era, Pakistan has emerged with a new identity offering enormous opportunities as well as new challenges. The incident and following events have brought a drastic change in the attitude of people and governments. It is necessary that we take an account of what we have gained and/or lost over the five decades. On this day the Muslims pledged to start the movement for an independent country, free from all types of exploitation. The indicators provide sufficient signals for expected turn around. However, the temporary gains should not distract us from pursuing reforms vigorously.


NEW OIL REFINERY
A new oil refinery with an installed capacity of 30,000 barrel per day with an estimated cost of $50 million is likely to go into production by October-November in Pakistan this year. Refining sector in Pakistan has a total capacity of 11 million tons a year as against the consumption of 18 million tons per annum. Existing oil refineries in Pakistan are including National Refinery, Pakistan Refinery, Attock Refinery and Pak Arab Refinery (PARCO).


EXPORT
The Export Promotion Bureau (EPB) has launched an aggressive marketing campaign of Pakistani products in Africa, Eastern Europe, South America, Central Asia Republics, Australia and New Zealand. In order to carry out the scheme, EPB plans to hire warehouse space of about 10,000 to 30,000 square feet for ex-stock goods, surgical instruments and other goods in these countries.
