PRESS RELEASE INAUGURATION CEREMONY – DISPLAY CENTRE OF DEFENCE EXPORT PROMOTION ORGANIZATION (DEPO)
Islamabad 6th October: Rana Tanveer Hussain, Federal Minister for Defence Production inaugurated a state of the art Display Centre established by Defence Export Promotion Organization (DEPO) at Defence Complex Islamabad (DCI), in which defence related products manufactured by public and private sectors of Pakistan are being showcased under one roof. While addressing on the occasion, the Minister said that in the beginning Pakistan’s Armed Forces were mostly dependent on defence equipment of foreign origin. Now, due to spirit of self reliance and as a result of hard work of our scientists and engineers, we have achieved the capability to completely overhaul, repair and modernize the military hardware in Pakistan. This is a reflection of the indigenous capability of our defence industries. He further said that Pakistan, both in public and private sectors, have developed a tremendous capacity to manufacture both small and heavy weaponry.
