KARACHI: Realising the immediate need to manufacture substitutes of imported goods from indigenous material, the Union of Small and Medium Enterprises (Unisame) has urged the Pakistan Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (PCSIR) to explore indigenous resources, a statement said on Friday.

The PCSIR has agreed to support the Unisame wholeheartedly and offered to facilitate the entrepreneurs who wish to develop various dairy items such as cheese, milk powder, butter from peanuts, sweeteners and others, it added.

Other items are substitutes for tea from lemon grass, edible oil, synthetic meat, reinforced and vitaminised water and beverages and even vitaminised rice and rice bran oil to save foreign exchange.

The PCSIR is keen to do research in many items of paints, enamels, polishes, wall coatings and decorative finishes.

Besides these items, the Unisame and PCSIR have also planned to manufacture the machinery locally and those entrepreneurs desiring on turnkey basis will be facilitated accordingly.

Unisame President Zulfikar Thaver asked the SMEs to take this adverse situation of the economy as a challenge and stand on their feet and get rid of dependency by starting manufacturing of these items.

Thaver said: “We have invited the SMEs to come forward and take advantage of this opportunity and explore more and more items to substitute imports.”

“We are also keen to ask PCSIR to take the initiative and suggest items in different fields of packing materials, recycled items, light engineering, nylon, synthetics in clothing and shelter on war footings, as there is a desperate need because of the dearth of the foreign currency,” he added.

Thaver thanked the PCSIR team, comprising consultants, scientists, researchers and marketing experts for assuring support to the small businesses.

The Unisame has formed a task force comprising Hussain Ratnani, Muslim Raza, Taha Amersy, Muzammil Chapal, Yousuf Yacoob and Zulfikar Thaver along with a PCSIR scientist and food technologist.
