He appreciated the untiring endeavours of Chairman Heavy Industries Taxila, its officers and skilled workforce, who are striving hard to make HIT a premium defence industry organization.

While highlighting the changing strategic and security environment across the globe, the Chief Guest emphasised the need for further collaborative efforts with technology partners in the field of “Research and Development” with special emphasis on indigenisation, said ISPR.
