Revival of Faisalabad industry evidence of economic turnaround: Hammad

ISLAMABAD: Minister for Industries and Production Hammad Azhar tweeted on Wednesday that the revival of Faisalabad’s industry is evidence of “a stark turn-around” in the national economy.

Taking to the popular micro-blogging site Twitter, he said: “In 2018, hundreds of units had closed down in Faisalabad with millions unemployed. Today the industry is revived and running at full capacity. Industry is reporting a shortage of labor for textile units.”

It is noteworthy that Prime Minister Imran Khan is visiting Faisalabad today to inaugurate various development projects. He will launch ‘Ehsaas Langar Scheme’ in the city and will hold meetings with the business community, textile manufacturers and exporters of the city.
