It is my privilege to write to you once more. Looking back, after almost two decades since I started investing in Engro, it has been my constant endeavour to harmonise the institutionalised professional culture at Engro, with the entrepreneurial mindset of the Dawood Hercules Group.Our significant success can be attributed to our shared business vision to passionately resolve critical societal issues.
We must continue to build strategic business partnerships to address meaningful problems. I am sure you would agree that this is critical, if we are to sustainably contribute to national growth and value creation in the longer term. Allow me to share some enduring relationships towards this goal.
Our momentous partnership with Royal FrieslandCampina has enabled us to accelerate our work on improving the productivity of dairy farmers. This defining moment for Pakistan signifies our continued contribution to our nation’s economic prosperity and Engro’s commitment to eradicating malnutrition in our younger generation.
I am delighted to share our landmark progress towards affordably reducing Pakistan’s energy deficit though development of indigenous coal sources. This is brought about by Engro’s unique capabilities to bring together key partners including the Government of Sindh, Chinese investors and Pakistani business enterprises. Engro’s passion to contribute to the socio economic development has been a fundamental consideration and has been built into this investment endeavour. The development of employment, livelihoods, health, education, technical training and water resources in Thari communities is progressing aggressively.
