Federal Minister for Planning, Development and Special Initiatives Asad Umar has assured that he would fully support the Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ICCI) in its endeavours for the establishment of a new industrial estate near Islamabad so that industrialization would flourish in the region.
This was stated by him while addressing a delegation of ICCI led by its President Sardar Yasir Ilyas Khan, which called on him here on Thursday. Other members of the delegation included Khalid Javed, Shaban Khalid, Ch. Nadeem Gujjar and Taha Akbar Ansari.
Asad Umar fully endorsed the proposal of ICCI for setting up a new industrial estate near Islamabad and said that he would move a summary of this proposal to the government for approval and materialization of this important project.
He said that the government would try to acquire land under Sec-4 for industrial estate to meet the needs of investors and industrialists of the federal capital. He said that the current government was fully focused on reviving industrialization to achieve rapid economic growth and maximum facilitation would be extended to the ICCI for a new industrial zone in the region.
