Apparel park to create over 2 lakh jobs in Pakistan

Pakistan expects an additional 200,000 jobs after the Quaid-e-Azam Apparel Park at Lahore-Sheikhupura Motorway is completed, according to Punjab Industrial Estates Development and Management Company (PIEDMC) Chairman Malik Tahir Javaid.

The chairman said that Chinese companies had planned to train Pakistani labourers in various industrial disciplines. He told reporters in Lahore that under this plan, various universities would be linked up with the industrial sectors to achieve the target.

Malik said that China was already running a training programme for its unskilled people, which would be replicated in Pakistan. Representatives from Chinese companies would visit Pakistan to launch this training programme soon.

He said there was a vast possibility of Chinese investment in the Quaid-e-Azam Apparel Park, which would lead to the need of skilled labour, possessing knowledge of Chinese work ethics.

The PIEDMC Chairman said the training of over 200,000 workers would be a challenge for PIEDMC and no stone would be left unturned to meet it.

Earlier this month, Pakistan's Board of Investment (BoI) has declared the Quaid-e-Azam Apparel Park in Punjab province as a Special Economic Zone (SEZ)

The apparel park is a state of the art project of the PIEDMC which is being constructed on 1,536 acres of land on Sheikhupura Motorway Road. The construction work is underway at a fast pace. (SH)
