Shahbaz Sharif said that work on the project should be completed without wasting any time. He said that the Punjab government had promoted the culture of transparency and all development projects had been completed in a transparent manner.
He said that Quaid-e-Azam Apparel Park would be an example of speedy execution and transparency. He said that 200 acres labour colony equipped with modern residential facilities would also be constructed in the park for the convenience of the labourers.
Provincial ministers Ch Shafiq, Tanvir Aslam Malik, member provincial assembly Dr Ayesha Ghaus Pasha, additional chief secretary energy, secretaries of C&W, law, industries, labour, chairman PIDMC, and other concerned authorities attended the meeting.

As per the MoU, 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 PIEDMC for the project.
