APETT’s New President, Eng. Imtiaz Easahak addresses the 58th Annual General Meeting
“To give real service you must add something which cannot be bought or measured with money, and that is sincerity and integrity.” – This is a quotation from Douglas Adams
Good Morning fellow Engineers
I wish to thank all of you today for attending our 58th Annual General Meeting and entrusting me as President of the Association over the next Year- I feel honoured and excited to continue the Association’s work in promoting the highest standards of engineering professional practice as stated in our vision.
A few years ago, I was encouraged by one of our past presidents, Eng. Dr. Haydn Furlonge (for whom I have tremendous admiration) to play a greater role in APETT. Over the last six or seven years I have had the opportunity to work alongside many of you who contributed significantly to my development and preparation for this key role.I wish to thank both Eng. Fazir Khan-our outgoing President and Eng. Neil Dookie – our outgoing Immediate Past President for their encouragement and support over the past year as President-Elect.
As I reflect upon the Association’s work over the past few years, I must say that we are indeed making strides in many areas and as President, I intend to continue this good work with the new council. I am a strong believer in promoting local engineering content and enhancing the skills and competence of our Engineers.Building Human Capital in the field of Engineering is paramount to the future survival of our beloved twin island especially as our energy sector continues to be challenged with Gas Shortages as well as globally suppressed Oil and Gas prices.
