The concept of utilising waste to generate energy might soon be introduced in Pakistan and the ministries concerned would be educated about the technology, said Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FPCCI) President Mian Nasser Hyatt Maggo.
In a meeting with a delegation of Pakistan Plastic Manufacturers Association on Tuesday, he said Chinese innovation and introduction of waste recycling was gaining traction in Pakistan.
“Pakistan’s exports are concentrated in only a few products and a handful of markets,” he said, stressing that the country should focus on non-traditional goods.
The plastic industry had great contribution to the economic development of Pakistan, they said.
The meeting concluded with a proposal to set up a committee on the ease of doing business.
