development of industries / commercial complexes. Out of 12200 acres of land 8700.5 acres was available for allotment. Almost all  land has been allotted to various entrepreneur and a reasonable number of them have set up projects in the Industrial Zone, attracting huge investment in local and foreign exchange estimated to the tune of  around  3.0 billion USD.  So far 95 units are operational while 85 are in construction phase.

To enhance production and export of value added textile products, GOP plans setting up a“Textile City” on 1250 acres in the Eastern Industrial Zone of PQA. PQA has handed over possession of 700 acres of land to Pakistan Textile City Ltd. (PTCL) on Jan. 19, 2005. Balance 550 acres of land shall be allotted in 2nd phase. The cost of project is estimated around Rs. 3.6 billion excluding Power Plant and Waste Water Treatment which would additionally cost Rs. 5.1 billion.  This would not only facilitate vendors and suppliers of raw material and emergence of downstream and support industries but would also create immense employment opportunities as a result, during construction and operation phases besides earning valuable foreign exchange for the country.
