Gold Art Promotion Council-Pakistan has been renamed as Gold & Gems Art Promotion Council-Pakistan (GGAPC-Pakistan). This change has been initiated through a resolution tabled by Muhammad Zheshan Ibraheim, Vice-President (Gems sector) at a meeting held under the chairmanship of Muhammad Ahmad, President of the organisation.
The meeting through a resolution demanded of the government to conduct a survey in the Northern Areas pf the country for the exploration of precious stones. “Pakistan’s matchless stones should be introduced in the international market so that we could earn foreign exchange for the country” GAPC-Pakistan suggested. This wealth is being wasted because of lack of proper planning. In this connection the GGAPC-Pakistan is ready to offer its service for this national cause, it added.
