China is upgrading the textile sector in Pakistan.
China is already running a training program for its unskilled people, which would be replicated in Pakistan. Chinese companies will train Pakistani laborers in various industrial disciplines. Under this plan, various universities would be linked up with industrial sectors.
An apparel park is coming up in Pakistan. The Quaid-e-Azam apparel park is expected to generate an additional two lakh jobs. There is a vast possibility of Chinese investment in the Quaid-e-Azam apparel park, which would lead to the need of skilled labor, possessing knowledge of Chinese work ethics.
China is collaborating on several other parks in Pakistan.
The apparel park in Punjab province has been declared a Special Economic Zone. The apparel park is a state of the art project which is being constructed on 1,536 acres of land. Construction is underway at a fast pace.
The setting up of the textile park would promote the development of the textile sector in the region, while also strengthening the national economy. The construction of the textile park would also mean that Pakistan would be availing of the benefit of modern technology and technical skills that are currently practiced in the Chinese textile sector. It would also contribute to enhancing Pakistan’s exports.
