ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Federal Minister for Science and Technology Shibli Faraz on Thursday visited the National Institute of Electronics (NIE) in Islamabad where he was briefed in detail regarding the working and initiatives of the institute.

Shibli Faraz also reviewed the different products being developed by the institute and took a keen interest in numerous initiatives like smart electric metres, smart parking systems and FMCW (Frequency Modulation Continuous Wave) radars.

In his remarks on the occasion, the minister said that there are certain gaps in the functionality of NIE, like patent registration, lack of product development, and absence of commercial linkages with the industry due to which this institute has not achieved its true potential.
