Dawlance launches Solar washing machines at Dawn Lifestyles Exhibition.  

Dawlance is Pakistan’s leading brand of home-appliances, which has an international collaboration with Arcelik – a Turkish enterprise with global leadership in technologies. This innovative enterprise recently participated in the Dawn LifeStyles Exhibition, held at the Expo Center in Karachi from 1st to 3rd February, 2019. The Turkish Consul General in Karachi – Mr. Tolga Uçak also visited the Dawlance Pavilion at the Dawn LifeStyles Exhibiton, where the CEO of Dawlance – Mr. Salih Arslantaş and Head of Marketing – Mr. Hasan Jameel welcomed the distinguished diplomat.

This event also marked the launch of Dawlance’s latest Washing Machine 5100 DC, boasting a Brushless DC (BLDC) Motor, with a lifetime warranty, that runs on Solar and Battery power, to offer greater convenience to the Pakistani consumers. It will cater to the growing segment of consumers in Pakistan who run their appliances on 12 Volts DC current through alternate sources like Solar-Power Plus battery.

Promising up to 30% energy saving, completely ‘Silent’ operations and a lifetime of savings on electricity bills, this product is compatible with all sources giving 12 Volts DC output. These 12 Volts DC motors do not run on A/C current. The Grid supply in many areas across Pakistan is not regular, while in many areas it is not even available. Due to the friction-less operation, the BDLC motor is much more efficient in electricity consumption and noise-reduction.”

The Head of Marketing at Dawlance – Mr. Hasan Jameel stated that; “Dawlance is known for its reliability and prompt after sales-services all over Pakistan. With continuous Research and Development practices, it has become a pioneering brand, that goes beyond the expectations of its consumers, to earn their trust in its wide range of products. 




Pakistan, India hope to reap investment from Saudi prince's visit

Pakistan, India hope to reap investment from Saudi prince's visit


NEW DELHI/ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is expected to announce investments in energy and infrastructure during a visit to India and Pakistan in coming days as part of his efforts to wean the Saudi economy off oil exports.



He is also expected to visit China, Malaysia and Indonesia during a tour that will be his first through the region since the storm over the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist, at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in October.

Prince Mohammed is expected to sign agreements, mostly linked to a refinery and the power sector, during the trip to Pakistan this weekend, Pakistani officials said.

The memorandums of understanding will include renewable energy projects and investments in petrochemicals and mineral resources, Saudi state news agency SPA said.

The prince is expected in New Delhi next week, along with leading Saudi businessmen, at the invitation of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, India’s foreign ministry said on Tuesday.

Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan was among a handful of leaders who attended an investment conference in Saudi Arabia in October, an event boycotted by many companies and world leaders in protest over Khashoggi’s killing.

India’s Modi met the prince in November, when they were both in Argentina for a Group of 20 summit. Saudi Arabia is India’s top supplier of crude oil but the two countries have expanded ties beyond energy, and their governments have agreed to build a strategic partnership, the foreign ministry said.

In a statement, it cited cooperation in areas including energy security, trade and investment, infrastructure, defense and security.

India is expecting Prince Mohammed to announce an initial investment in its National Investment and Infrastructure Fund (NIIF), a quasi-sovereign wealth fund, to help accelerate the building of ports and highways, an Indian official said.

Saudi state media said Saudi officials will discuss an investment in NIIF.

Saudi Arabia has also flagged a desire to invest in India’s farm sector, with products to be exported to Saudi, another official at the trade ministry said.

REFINERY HITCH
However, progress on a $44 billion refinery that Indian state-run oil companies agreed to build with Saudi Aramco on India’s west coast has been held up by strong opposition from mango farmers who will lose their land.

Since taking office in 2014, Modi has sought to use India’s fast-growing economy to attract more investment from Saudi Arabia and other Islamic nations.

As a fellow Muslim country, Pakistan has long maintained strong ties with Saudi Arabia. In late October, Riyadh offered Pakistan a $6 billion loan to help keep its ailing economy afloat.

   Saudi Arabia has also announced plans for a $10 billion refinery and petrochemical complex at the coastal city of Gwadar, where China is building a port as part of its vast Belt and Road initiative.

    “They’re looking at the energy sector, at some of our privatization plans that they might bid for through our privatization process,” Pakistani investment minister Haroon Sharif told Reuters.

    Sharif, who chairs Pakistan’s Board of Investment, said there was also Saudi interest in Pakistan’s mining sector.

    “Saudi Arabia has huge resources. Their investment fund is over $1 trillion, so we want just a fraction of that,” said a second Pakistani minister, who did not wish to be named.

Saudi state news said Saudi officials will discuss investments with China, South Korea and Indonesia, in sectors including healthcare and telecommunications, without giving further details.
