Karachi: The door to 10th Build Asia 2014 incorporating with Stonefair Asia, the leading international Construction Industry Exhibition in Pakistan gets ready to open on September 23rd, 2014. Pakistan Stone Development Company – PASDEC is the Co Organizer of the Event.

 
As the largest event of its kind in Pakistan, Build Asia provides an unrivalled platform for architects, consultants, interior designers, builders, landscapers, developers, contractors, machinery & equipment manufacturers & suppliers from the public and private sectors to network, source and specify the latest building and construction products and services.  The Event provides the most comprehensive product offering for the building and construction industry.

 
The Chief Guest visited stalls and met domestic and international exhibitors. The 10th Build Asia Exhibition is featuring over 85 exhibitors, ranging from major global suppliers to regional agents and distributors of building & construction sector.

 
Ghulam Murtaza Jatoi said, The Federal Ministry of Industries & Production is committed towards promoting the Construction Industry of Pakistan by supporting such Exhibitions. This exhibition serves as a point of contact and an ideal platform for business negotiations for the companies. Large-scale construction activities are flourishing across the country, particularly in big cities. New buildings with modern designs, houses, office complexes, shopping plazas, malls and quite a few sky-scrappers have cropped up or can be witnessed under construction in urban areas. The construction sector has seen many ups and downs over the years. Good news is that construction sector is picking up once again and, with a positive impact on a number of allied industries. The need of such events, where all stake holders of the Building, Construction & Real-Estate services and industry get together under one roof to network and interact, is acute and Build Asia has been providing that platform and opportunity since last 10 years. Moreover, it is expected that Build Asia would instigate the much-needed flow of investment in this sector. It is indeed very encouraging to see PASDEC playing its role in providing opportunities to the small entrepreneurs. The role being played by PASDEC and Ecommerce Gateway is indeed a perfect example of public-private partnership. Successful events such as Build Asia help the government to restore the investors’ confidence in the country. The government of Pakistan has provided a number of incentives to the local and international investors to make the sector stronger and competitive. Build Asia through its exhibitions has also contributed in bringing public and private sector closer together. The participation of international players and their supportive role for our local Housing sector has been another feather in the cap of Build Asia. Through these events the foreign construction companies would be able to gauge the scope of housing and construction industry in Pakistan and would surely venture into partnership with local builders. In the end, I would like to appreciate the efforts of the Ecommerce Gateway Pakistan and all others who have worked hard for putting together this exclusive event.
