The US Export Promotion Bureau is to establish a surgical instrument laboratory and training institute in Pakistan in collaboration with the Pakistan Surgical Goods Manufacturers Association at a cost of $1.4 million. The institute will provide training in the use of high technology surgical devices and will be responsible for testing raw materials used by Pakistan's instrument industry, say local press reports. Over 50% of Pakistani surgical products are exported to the US, with Germany the second largest importer. In 1992/93, US imports of surgical goods from Pakistan totalled $59 million out of a total of $102.3 million.
