The Garment city would take two years to complete and will be set up on 500 acres of land at an estimated cost of around Rs. 225 million, informed Sindh Minister for Industries and Commerce Mr. Rauf Siddiqui in a meeting.

Mr. Siddiqui who chaired the meeting said, in a bid to improve the export of value added garments, made ups and accessories as well as leather garments to international markets, the government will provide facilities and necessary infrastructure to textile, leather and garment sector. Foreign investors or entrepreneurs could also begin production in the garment city in accordance with WTO requirements, he added.

The project is expected to attract foreign investors, wherein they will get contemporary factory space, and it would generate ample of job opportunities, particularly for women. In the countries, including, China, Singapore, Vietnam and Bangladesh, garment cities are already operating successfully, while India is coming up with industrial parks for garments.

Three Garment cities in Pakistan at Lahore, Karachi and Faisalabad are anticipated to develop state-of-the-art facilities for garment manufacturers, under the Trade Policy. The garment city, which is to be set up in Hyderabad on 500 acres of land, would be the biggest in Pakistan, informed the Minister.

He ordered the Secretary, Industries & Commerce to complete the project before stipulated period of two years so that people of Sindh could reap social and economic benefits.
