TIANJIN, China, Sept 12 (APP): Global CEO of multinational Unilever, Paul Polman called on Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf here on Wednesday and apprised him of his company’s plan to set up water filtration plants in Pakistan at a large scale. The Unilever’s CEO said the multinational company would launch safe drinking water project considering it a social responsibility.  He said the no-profit, no-loss project would also be supported by Bills Gates, the founder and owner of Microsoft Company.

The Prime Minister appreciated the idea of Unilever and said it would benefit a large number of people across the country that had little or no access to safe water.
He said the government would facilitate Unilever to carry out its clean water project so that the filtration plants be installed at reduced costs.
The Unilever CEO apprised the Prime Minister of his company’s recent pact signed with India under which it would make products in Pakistani Punjab and would export to the Indian Punjab.
