The second International Conference on Business Management (ICoBM) 2012 organized by the University of Management and Technology (UMT), at its purpose-built campus, got off to an impressive start today with over 100 presenters and corporate speakers in attendance.

In the inaugural speech, Sardar Muhammad Latif Khosa, Governor Punjab and Patron UMT, said that we were once the pioneers in research and development but have now receded to the backbenchers. He said that maturity of political thinking and continuity of policy is required for economic stability.

The theme of the conference is “Business, Society, Science and Technology”.

Dr Ishrat Husain, Chief Guest of the ICoBM 2012, Dean and Director, IBA Karachi, Chairman AMDIP, said that the conference theme is critical to the success and development of Pakistan. Delivering the keynote address, Dr Nadeem ul Haque, Deputy Chairman Panning Commission, said that every country has the capacity to grow. Nations succeed because they build institutions, accept research, respect the scientific method and learn from the rest of the world.

Earlier, Dr Hasan Sohaib Murad, Rector UMT welcomed the distinguished guests to the 2nd ICoBM 2012. He thanked Dr Nadeem for sharing the new framework of the Planning Commission. He added that the insight provided by Dr Ishrat into the workings of the global economies is invaluable. Dr Hasan Murad said that the 2nd ICoBM 2012 aims to bring together academia, business and government to collaborate with a team spirit. He said that the agenda of the conference rests with the leadership. It is the leadership that strategizes for change. He thanked the 150 + presenters for attending the event and said that he is looking forward to two days of deliberation, discussion, discourse, and meaningful idea exchange.

The conference was attended by a large number of dignitaries, educationists, intellectuals, business executives, government representatives, and public policy makers, representatives of the corporate world and students of business schools. The academic and corporate sessions of the ICOBM 2012 will continue for two days, concurrently in five separate seminar halls, and the conference will conclude tomorrow evening, i.e., March 29, 2012.
