ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday performed the groundbreaking of ‘Prefabricating Housing Project’ in Islamabad.
Addressing the ceremony, the premier said the project would help provide affordable houses to the ordinary people in the shortest possible time.
The prefabricated houses would be established in big cities, including Karachi and Lahore, where many people have been residing in shanties and “buying land is extremely expensive there,” said PM.
The prefabricated houses could be set up within three to four months while construction of flats takes three to four years, he said.
Housing, agriculture, exports and relocation of industry from China were amongst the top priorities of the government, he added.
Emphasising on raising the productivity in agriculture sector, he said enhanced agricultural production would put an impact on economic growth and increase in exports would enhance foreign exchange reserves.
The Board of Investment, the Ministry of Commerce and other relevant departments were taking effective measures to ease investment in Pakistan and facilitate the business community, he further added.
