Revival of Faisalabad’s Industry
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. The industry is reporting a shortage of labor for textile units.”
