KARACHI: Governor Sindh Dr Ishratul Ebad Khan inaugurated the Korangi Creek Industrial Park (KCIP), a project undertaken by the National Industrial Parks Development and Management Company (NIP), a subsidiary of Pakistan Industrial Development Corporation (PIDC), on Friday.
“We will make all possible efforts to facilitate both local and foreign businessmen. The industrial progress that Pakistan is making is because of the government’s policy of privatisation and public-private partnership,” said Ishratul Ebad Khan.
Governor Sindh directed the City Nazim of Karachi, Syed Mustafa Kamal, who was present at the ceremony, to lay the main road leading to the industrial park instantly, to facilitate the KCIP project and to support healthy business activities in the area.
The government will try its best to help improve the security of industrial areas which cannot be neglected any further after the chaos of Dec 27, 2007, Ebad added.
“We are striving to support the industrial progress of the country, and to facilitate the businessmen and business activities has been our policy. The govt has been pursuing the policy of creating more and more opportunities for employment and to lessen poverty in the country. One window operation was a far cry in our country, but it is very heartening to see projects like these where one window operation is no longer a dream,” he added.
KCIP is a state-of-the-art project which has been developed with the assistance of the internationally renowned Jurong Consultants of Singapore because of their expertise and wide experience
