Provincial Minister for Industries & Trade Mian Aslam Iqbal chaired a meeting at Civil Secretariat to review the colonization of industrial estates under PIEDMC by providing the necessary infrastructure.
Secretary Industries Wasif Khurshid, Chairman PIEDMC Syed Nabeel Hashmi, CEO Javed Ilyas, board member Arif Qasim, and others attended the meeting. 71 new industrial units have been established in Sundar Industrial Estate during the last year while Nabeel Hashmi informed that a paid internship program is being started.
While giving in-principle approval to expansion in Sundar Industrial Estate, the minister directed to devise and submit a feasible model in the next meeting.
He expressed the satisfaction that work is in progress on Quaid-i-Azam Business Park in Sheikhupura. The minister also directed that construction of the interchange, labor colony, business center, and provision of necessary infrastructure should be completed within the timeline as it would expedite the colonization of industrial estates.
It is sanguine that the industrialization process has been expedited due to the investor-friendly policies and the ease of doing business approach of the PTI government. Meanwhile, government policies are benefitting the masses as the establishment of new industries in industrial estates has created innumerable job opportunities, concluded the minister.
