PESHAWAR: The Hattar Special Economic Committee in its 6th meeting has approved the six industries for setting up their units in Hattar Special Economic Zone (SEZ). A statement issued here on Tuesday stated that in another boost to industrialization in KPK, in spite of covid pandemic, the Hattar SEZ Committee unanimously approved 6 applications for setting up units at Hattar SEZ in meeting held at Haripur industrial estate.

These 6 units combined consist of 31 acres, will inject Rs5.6 billion investments and generate over 1000 employment opportunities. The industries include oil and ghee, metals, herbal products and fragrances, pharma and plastic industries.

The Chairman of the Committee Javed Khattak said that this was a momentous day for Hattar SEZ. Due to its strategic location and SEZ status, many industrialists are interested in investing at the Zone. Now that 10MW electricity is around the corner and installation of poles for 40MW electricity through grid station is under way, demand for land at the Zone has gone up.

Similarly, 2.5 mmcfd gas through a CMS has reached the entrance of the Zone and procedures for internal gas distribution is in process. Due to availability of gas and electricity shortly, we foresee a boom in construction of industries at the Zone.

The SEZ committee consists of Javed Khattak (Committee Chairman and CEO KPEZDMC), Hassan Butt (Committee Member and CEO KPBOIT), Fakhre Alam (Committee Member and Director KPSEZA), Abdul Sami (Committee Member and Director SEZ BOI), Asad Ali (Nominee by DC who is a Committee Member) and Ali Ozgen (Secretary Committee and Zone Manager Hattar SEZ).
