If Pakistan is to take its proper place among the progressive nations of the world, it will have to take up a good deal of leeway in the realm of scientific and technical education which is so necessary for the proper development of the country and utilization of resources.
The establishment of institution like INSTITUTE OF ENGINEERS will greatly stimulate technical research and help in disseminating available information. The INSTITUTE OF ENGINEERS will not only benefit the engineers themselves by improving their technical knowledge but also bring lasting benefits to public services which they are upon to perform. I wish the Institute every success.
