Life in Karachi

Posted on by Muhammad Saleem-ul-Haq in Karachi Today | Leave a comment

I hope the prime minister knows that the people living in Karachi have suffered and seen various shades of mercilessness. The rivalry between the KESC and the KWSB has led to a complete disaster for the residents of Karachi. There are many senior citizens who live alone and cannot buy water, because who will hold the heavy gallons for them? And many have no money to buy water either.

And calling customer services is of no use – all you get are excuses.

Just imagine, can the PM House go without drinking water? We can survive without electricity (we have had to), but there is no concept of life even on Mars without water. Being a law-abiding and tax- and bill-paying citizen of Pakistan it is my right to ask the prime minister why I am being deprived of drinking water.

Seminar on supply chain-Horizon & challenges of Pakistan fruit Industry

Posted on by manager in Education, Events, Karachi Today | Leave a comment

Supply Chain Management – Horizon & Challenges of Pakistan Fruit Industry 

Aim:
To conduct a successful Seminar on “Supply Chain Management- Horizon & Challenges of Pakistan Fruit Industry”.
Introduction to seminar:
Fruit Industry, like any other industry in Pakistan, is suffering because there is no proper storage, processing, lack of logistical support and low yield of fruits. People have no knowledge about new, advanced marketing techniques, post harvest managements and supply chain management practices. The consequence of all this is that Pakistan export potential of its vegetables and fruits is limited and this industry is not growing with pace that it should be. There is a huge demand of Pakistani fruits and vegetables in international market. Despite of this fact Pakistan only exports 10 to 15% of its total productivity of fruits. There are some countries which export almost 50% of their fruit yield in international market. All these resulted in losses in economic terms and our horticulture sector contributes 12% of Pakistan’s Agricultural yield. Therefore The main purpose of organizing this seminar is to bring the luminaries from Industry and Academia under one roof to deliberate the supply chain issues & challenges faced by Agribusiness organizations to deliver quality products and services that meet customer expectations. This Supply Chain Management seminar aims to explore challenges faced by supply chain professionals of Pakistan fruit history and difficulties faced in supply chain management practices. Different supply chain professionals will also share solutions which have been key practice for the improve supply chain to improve service levels and drive down costs. This seminar will build bridge the gap between industry and academia to exchange their thoughts and current requirements. It will guide the students to explore supply chain and get clear view about this developing field.
