Mr. Sharif said the construction of a large textile park in a barren area of Faisalabad would result in hundreds of thousands of new employment opportunities, in addition to substantially contribute in increasing the country’s exports.

He said FIEDMC is providing latest international standard infrastructure in M-III Industrial Estate.
