Chief Minister of Pakistan’s Punjab province Shahbaz Sharif has approved the initial design of the master plan of Quaid-e-Azam Apparel Park Project at a high-level meeting in Lahore, Pakistani newspapers have reported. The park has been visualised as a milestone in the development of textile and garments sector.

The Punjab government has allocated 1567 acres land for this mega project which targets job opportunities to lakhs of people in addition to giving a big boost to the textile exports.

The Apparel Park will also house a labour colony, textile institute, commercial center, exhibition center and a hospital.

The chief minister reprimanded the authorities concerned over delay in some matters and said that every moment is important with regard to the project and warned lethargic officials of drastic action.

Sharif said that the construction of boundary wall and other work should be completed at early as possible and Provincial Minister for Labour and Minister for Industry should personally supervise the performance of concerned departments as well as the pace of the project.

The chief minister told the meeting that the project will not only result in job opportunities but also help in developing quality skilled manpower for textile and garment sector. With that aim in mind, the Punjab government is also setting up a modern technical center in the park.

He said that best facilities would be provided to industrialists and investors in Quaid-e-Azam Apparel Park as this state-of-the-art project with investment of billions of rupees will accelerate the process of industrialisation. (SH)
