FAISALABAD: New civilian airport is imperative to cater to the future needs of Faisalabad and the incumbent government should immediately approve the project on emergency basis, said Engineer Muhammad Saeed Sheikh, President Faisalabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FCCI).

In a statement issued here Sunday, he said that Faisalabad is one of the most important industrial, business and commercial hub of the country. It is exporting textile products worth $6 billion, which are 55% of the total textile exports of Pakistan.

He said that increase in textile volume had paved the way for export of other non-traditional items which would increase manifold after the completion of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project.
