Lahore, October 21, 2020 (PPI-OT):Chinese model of Water Purification System should be replicated in Pakistan to reduce possibility of water borne diseases, which are troubling Pakistan’s economy up to $1.4 billion every year and are the biggest source of gastrointestinal infections.” Mr. S.M Naveed, President Pakistan China Joint Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCJCCI) stated this while speaking at Think-Tank meeting of PCJCCI.
Mr. Daud Ahmed, Senior Vice President PCJCCI, stressed that Water crisis is a global issue and now China wants to benefit world, since Pakistan faces such crisis particularly in Sindh and northern Punjab, that’s why they want to introduce such plants to Pakistan. He further added that, China’s global fresh water resources are merely 6 percent whereas they have to provide clean drinking water to 20 percent of world population. With the years of research and exploration, China has devised a water purification system that not only enabled China to meet its water need but also provided people with medically approved healthy water, he added.
Mr. Khalid Raffique Choudhry, Vice President PCJCCI, said that China has developed the products which kill deadly bacteria and viruses in parts of the developing world where access to water filtration is limited. He further added that water in Shanghai is obtained from the Huangpu River, the remaining 20% comes from the Yangtze River. Unfortunately, both are among the most polluted rivers in the world but with the help of latest technology of purification system we are combating this challenge and are willing to share it with the world.
Mr. Salahuddin Hanif, Secretary General PCJCCI, said the existing framework of Pakistan’s water purification system needs to be revolutionized and such technologies will bring innovations in water facilities. He articulated that, safe water purification is really vital as water chlorination is causing more harm than tap water itself.
