ISLAMABAD - Chairman of Capital Development Authority (CDA) Kamran Lashari has announced to establish another industrial estate in sector I-17 of the federal capital.

Lashari made the pledge during a meeting with the executive body of Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ICCI) on Tuesday. Muhammad Ijaz Abbasi, President ICCI, Khalid Javed, former president of ICCI, and other high officials of the Authority and the Chamber attended the meeting.

The meeting decided that the industrial zone would be developed with the collaboration of ICCI, for which CDA would soon acquire the land. A committee was constituted for preparing the modalities for the development of the sector after acquisition of the land.

The committee comprises Muhammad Ijaz Abbasi, President ICCI, Asadullah Faiz, Director Land and Rehabilitation, CDA and other officials of the two bodies. It was decided that the committee would hold joint meetings on weekly basis, while the first meeting of the committee would be held on August 1, it has been learnt.

Speaking on the occasion, Lashari stressed the need of a high-class technical and vocational institute and urged ICCI to join hands with the civic body for realizing the dream.

He also directed CDA’s Director Land Asadullah Faiz to locate a suitable site for establishment of the institute.

“I have a dream to establish an exemplary institute to produce competent and skilled manpower”, said Chairman of CDA, who requested ICCI to make joint efforts with the Authority to make the dream true. He said the skilled labourers are the real representatives of the country all over the world, who, he said, were earning precious foreign exchange for the country through their hardworking and skills. He said skilled labourers would enhance productivity of the country’s industrial sector and would indirectly contribute to strengthening economy of the country.
