Quaid e Azam Apparel Park to create over 200,000 jobs

LAHORE: (APP) Punjab Industrial Estates Development and Management Company (PIEDMC) Chairman Malik Tahir Javaid said on Tuesday that completion of Quaid-e-Azam Apparel Park at Lahore-Sheikhupura Motorway would create over 200,000 jobs.

The Chairman said that Chinese companies had planned to train Pakistani labour in various industrial disciplines.

Talking to media here, he said that under this plan, various universities would be linked up with the industrial sectors to achieve the target.

Malik said that China was already running a training programme for its unskilled people, which would be replicated in Pakistan. Representatives from Chinese companies would visit Pakistan to launch this training programme soon.

He said there was a vast possibility of Chinese investment in the Quaid-e-Azam Apparel Park, which would lead to the need of skilled labour, possessing knowledge of Chinese work ethics.

He said the training of over 200,000 workers would be a challenge for PIEDMC and no stone would be left unturned to meet it.
