Lahore, March 22, 2019 (PPI-OT): Sialkot Tannery Association along with representative of UNIDO visit PBIT to discuss the establishment of Sialkot Tannery Special Economic Zone. It was discussed that there are around 250 tanneries existing in 10 clusters in and around Sialkot. In the absence of a proper effluent collection system and no treatment facilities, the effluents of these tanneries are being discharged poorly, which is increasing pollution in Sialkot and its vicinity to resolve these issues and develop state of the art tannery zone, PBIT extended full support to Sialkot Tannery Association for the declaration of Sialkot Tannery Zone as ‘Special Economic Zone’. Sialkot Tannery Association has also requested PBIT to facilitate the issues of electricity and gas supply, upon which PBIT extended full support and cooperation to raise the issue at federal level.
