Quaid-e-azam Industrial Estate (Qie): Striving Towards Excellence in Industrial Growth
Being a strong proponent of industrial growth as one of the key drivers of economic prosperity in the country, I did not have to think twice when I came across this wonderful opportunity to collaborate with the prestigious Quaid-e-Azam Industrial Estate (QIE) to publish a special edition featuring their profiles and accomplishments.
This first episode of QIE Special Edition is yet another milestone for Technobiz which brings to our esteemed readers the industrial profiles of industries operating in the QIE industrial park. The current issue serves as a useful information repository for the local industrial sector, private and government organizations, policy makers and regulatory bodies, but also for researchers, educationists, students and other industry stakeholders. Further, through this endeavor, we aim to create widespread awareness of the country's industrial progress amongst the general masses.
QIE is a public-private partnership in collaboration with the Punjab Government functioning under the umbrella of the Punjab Industrial Estates Development and Management Company (PIEDMC). It comprises of an industrial park spread over 565 acres of land and 477 industrial units of various industries ranging from textile, dyeing & printing, rubber & plastic ware, chemicals and pharmaceuticals to cosmetics, household appliances and food & dairy. The key goals of QIE are to further promote the local industry in Pakistan, facilitate the industrialists by providing them with top-class infrastructural facilities and services to ensure the smooth functioning of the industries, and help bridge the industry-consumer gap.
The QIE industrial park has contributed significantly in promoting industrialization in the Punjab province. It has helped in the country's poverty alleviation endeavors by creating local jobs and is contributing to the country's sustainable GDP growth. It is also worth acknowledging here that QIE greatly values gender inclusivity in the workplace; out of the total 50,000 workers that it currently employs, approximately 10,000 are females.
QIE has been industrialized into a modern, state-of-the-art industrial haven and can be termed a landmark project with international standards. Through the mobilization of technology in the industrial sector and in compliance with environmental laws, QIE is helping Pakistan achieve industrial excellence and compete more proficiently in the global market.
This special edition would not have been possible without the support of the Quaid-e-Azam Industrial Estate. We are highly indebted to the QIE management team as well as the QIE industries and their CEO's who trusted us and collaborated with us in the compilation of this special edition. We would also like to extend special thanks to Mr. Syed Tariq Siraj Jafri, President QIE, for his endless support during this project.
We hope that through this special edition we can provide our valuable readers with a broader outlook of the country's industrial development and the significant role that QIE is playing in accelerating Pakistan's industrial growth.
We look forward to your valuable feedback and comments.
