The MoU was signed at the Chief Minister of Punjab Shahbaz Sharif’s office, during a recent visit of a delegation including Luan Shun and Huaneng Shangdong from the Chinese firm led by chairman of the group Yafu Qiu.
Under the agreement, the Chinese textile firm would be providing technical assistance in the designing, planning as well as construction of the apparel park, and would be jointly working with the Punjab Industrial Estates Development and Management Company (PIEDMC), for the project.
Talking to the delegation, Chief Minister Sharif expressed gratitude towards the Ruyi Group for taking interest in the textile as well as energy sectors of the country.
The Punjab Government would be providing all the required facilities to the Chinese firm on a priority basis, he added.
During the visit, the Chinese Group also expressed interest for investing in the energy sector and informed the desire to set up two coal power plants of 660 mega watts in the city of Sahiwal in the region as well as two similar plants of 135 mega watts in the industrial estates of the country besides considering establishment of coal power plants near coal mines in the Salt Range of Punjab.
