Addressing a press conference to announce the summit, Punjab Industry & Commerce Minister Madan Mohan Mittal said  "We wish to showcase the quality initiatives taken by the department to promote technical education in Punjab at this summit. Besides, it should also serve as the perfect platform for exhibiting the potential and achievements of technical institutions in the state".
