The provincial government has officially launched Special Economic Zone (SEZ) at Dhabeji, district Thatta near Port Qasim. The 1,530-acre project has already been declared as a ‘priority special economic zone’ by the Government of Pakistan under the industrial cooperation phase of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor.
“This is the most viable and well-connected industrial zone of the region that provides a gateway to Central Asia, South Asia, Middle East and Africa,” said a press release.
The zone will offer state-of-the-art infrastructure, utilities at the doorsteps and easy access to the Karachi Port and Port Qasim and the main railway line (ML-1) and also to National Highway.
The Sindh government has launched this project through international competitive bidding process as a build-up to the upcoming 10th Joint Coordination Committee (JCC) meeting between China and Pakistan next month.
Senior officials of National Development Reforms Commission of China have showed their satisfaction on the proposed mechanism of the project.
