HYDERABAD: The Vice President Hyderabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry (HCCI) has demanded the high ups of Sindh Government to give due representation to business community of Hyderabad, Kotri and Tando Adam in Sindh Industrial Trading Estate (SITE) for development of industrial sector.
In a statement, he regretted that the management of SITE has adopted step motherly attitude with the business community of Hyderabad, Kotri and Tando Adam despite the fact that the community of these cities are contributing sizeable share in respect of revenue generation.
He said that because of non-availability of filter plant and water treatment plant, the industries of Hyderabad SITE are at the verge of destruction while the other hand, the industrialists are being harassed by sealing the industrial units by EPA on charge of violation of environmental laws. The closure of industrial units in Hyderabad SITE is also causing unemployment, he added. He said that Sindh Government had approved an area of 300 acres of land for establishment of Hyderabad SITE Phase-II for industrial development in the province, but no development work has so far been carried out in the allotted area nor the allotment orders have been granted to industrialists who booked plots in the area for construction of their industries.
He demanded the high ups of the provincial government including Governor Sindh Muhammad Zubair, Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah and Sindh Minister for Industries Manzoor Wassan to prepare a comprehensive strategy for uplift of industrial estates in remote cities of the province and also give due representation to business communities of these cities in SITE so that they could raise the issues of their respective cities at the appropriate forum.
