The committee unanimously recommended approving the proposal of Pak-Korea Technical Textile Centre after considering its benefits, the National Assembly said in a press release.

The standing committee, which assembled to discuss and finalise the PSDP budgetary proposals for 2016-17, also approved Rs 600 million for the construction of building of Faisalabad Garment City Training Center, in Faisalabad Garment City, the National Assembly said in a press release.

However, the budgetary proposals for the project, namely; “Pink Bollworm Area Wide Integrated Management in Cotton Growing Regions in Pakistan,” have been postponed till next meeting of the Committee for further deliberations.

The Committee also stressed the promotion of seed production and recommended that the Agriculture University, Faisalabad may be taken on-board.
