FIEDMC INITIATIVES
Flatted Factories/Weaving City

Textile industry has the largest potential for boosting exports from Pakistan. At present this sector contributes more than 60% share in the export of country. Apart from its basic contribution of clothing the nation and at the same time earning largest foreign exchange through exportable items, the textile industry holds the key to the growth and expansion of the country's cotton economy, which continues to be the main cash crop

bout 95% weaving industries of Pakistan are situated in and around Faisalabad. 300,000 upper looms and 225,000 power looms are running in Faisalabad. About 75,000 auto and shuttle less looms are busy in making export fabric in Faisalabad. Weaving industry is manufacturing 11.5 million meter clothes daily in Faisalabad by using 55% yarn of spinning industry. FIEDMC has floated the idea of provision of flatted factories through establishing weaving city at M-3IC.


It will help in reducing & controlling following social issues:-

  • Potential Hazard Risk to nearby Residents in terms of health, fire/ other accidents
  • Pollution
  • Reduce load on Civic Amenities of Metropolis Areas
  • Transforming our Cities into Greener & Cleaner Cities
  • Relocation of Industries from Informal to Formal Sector whereby all allied infrastructure is available
Furniture City

Pakistan has a history of world class craftsmanship and brilliant innovation in the field of wooden furniture. The furniture sector’s traditional wood-carving designs has been considerably enriched by the continuous addition of new furniture styles currently in vogue. The rapidly growing furniture industry is aiming to develop a system designed to incorporate the traditional styles fused with modern demands.

Furniture from Chiniot is exported all over the world and most of the furniture industry is located in informal sector. According to a survey, almost 150,000/- employment opportunities along with boost in exports are estimated just by providing a socially compliant platform to furniture industry. Such a platform would also serve as the main junction and house common facilities such as wood workshops, tool market, machinery spare parts etc and make our furniture manufacturers more compatible in the international market. M-3 Industrial City is focused at providing an environment and conditions that are favorable so that the furniture industry holds ample scope for further expansion.

Re-location of Industry

Faisalabad has been called the "Manchester of Pakistan" because it has a major impact on the economy of Pakistan. The city also generates 25% revenue for the trade and commerce activity of Pakistan. The textile industry of Faisalabad constitutes more than 20% of the textile export market of Pakistan, which itself forms 18% of total exports from Pakistan. This makes Faisalabad’s share of total exports from Pakistan more than 15%.

Faisalabad has a strong industrial base including textiles, jewellery, home furniture, and pharmaceuticals, assisted by the expanding transport network which includes newly-built motorway and highways to Lahore, Multan, Sargodha and Islamabad/Rawalpindi.
