BAJAUR: Special Assistant to the Chief Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa on Commerce and Industries Abdul Kareem Khan has said the provincial government has expedited work on the establishment of an industrial zone in Bajaur tribal district.
This announcement he made while speaking to delegations of tribal elders, political leaders and trade leaders during his visit to the district here at Khar on Wednesday.
He said the provincial government has made its efforts to establish small industrial zone in Bajaur which was approved by Prime Minister Imran Khan during his visit to the district on March 15.
The establishment of a small industrial zone would not only boost the social-economic condition of the region but would also provide job opportunities to the residents at their doorsteps.
He said such industrial zones would also be established in other tribal districts to promote trade and business activities in the merged tribal districts.
The merged tribal districts were very suitable for all sort of industries, but unfortunately, the previous governments did nothing in this regard. He said that national and international investors would invest in the merged tribal districts.
The elders, political activists and traders leaders on the occasion thanked Prime Minister Imran Khan and the provincial government for taking a keen interest in establishing small industrial zones in the region.
