Associated Press of Pakistan.

LAHORE, Punjab -- Punjab Chief Minister, Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi, has accorded approval to the design of Software Information Technology Park and announced that modern IT facilities would be made available in the park, which will be completed at a cost of Rs 1.5 billion in a period of one-year.

He disclosed this while presiding over a high-level meeting regarding implementation of Software Information Technology Park Project here on Friday. Representatives of Jurang International Singapore were also present.

Chief Secretary Punjab, Salman Siddique, Chairman P&D Suleman Ghani, Chairman Information Technology Board Rizwan Amin Sheikh, head of Project Management Unit of P&D Khalid Ahmad Khan, General Manager Information Technology Board Asad Gillani and other senior officials also attended the meeting.

The Chief Minister said that Software Technology Park, over an area of 32 kanals on Ferozepur Road, would be completed in about a year. He said this project would generate 10,000 direct and a large number of indirect job opportunities besides promoting international trade.

"This gigantic project would ensure a prominent place for Punjab Information Technology at the global level. This project would strengthen international IT contacts, create economic activities to the tune of Rs 5.5 billion as well as attract local and foreign investment," he added.

The tower would open up job opportunities for skilled and unskilled people willing to work. However, once completed, it might house around 1,500 - 2,000 IT professionals / engineers.

The tower looks around 25 - 30 storey's tall.

Lahore is Punjab's booming capital.
