Punjab Industrial Estates Development and Management Company (PIEDMC) chairman SM Tanveer has approved appointment of CNTEX, a Chinese firm, as foreign consultant for technical evaluation of Quaid-e-Azam Apparel Park, according to the Pakistani media.

Presiding over a meeting of the company’s board of directors, Tanveer said he was satisfied with the appointment. “The approved foreign consultant has vast experience in developing apparel parks,” he said.

The PIEDMC, he said, was determined to complete infrastructure development work on a war-footing basis to avail the preferential access to European markets under the GSP+ scheme.

He said CNTEX, would provide technical vetting, improvement in master planning, vetting of detailed design infrastructure works, besides doing the assignments like designing of Combined Effluent Treatment Plant (CETP), captive power plant and grid stations for the apparel park.

Tanveer said the park would create 250,000 jobs and house about 600 industrial plots of half acre to 25 acres. An independent power plant would also be developed to fulfil the requirement of energy within the park, he added.

Irregular power supply has been a major grouse of the Pakistan textile industry, but a captive power plant would ensure the apparel park would not suffer from lack of supply. (SH)
