July 30, 2021

KARACHI: Sindh government has expedited work on a proposal to set up a new industrial zone in North Karachi, and was seeking a site, which would be finalised later in consultation with the North Karachi Association of Trade and Industry (NKATI).

This was stated by Sindh Information and Local Government Minister Syed Nasir Hussain Shah during a meeting with a delegation led by NKATI President Faisal Moiz Khan, SVP Shabir Ismail and Sub-Committee Local Bodies Chairman Syed Yasir Hussain at his residence.

Shah said that promotion of trade and industry was the top priority of Sindh government, and Pakistan Peoples’ Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto had the same vision.

“All resources will be utilised to create vast employment opportunities and promote industrialisation,” the minister said, while directing Karachi Water and Sewerage Board MD to ensure uninterrupted water supply to the industries.

The provincial minister also asked the Sindh Building Control Authority to regularise the factories located in North Karachi Industrial Area, and to solve the issues related to District Municipal Corporation. He further said that Capt A Moiz Khan Road would be inaugurated and a notification would be issued soon.
