After the biggest children hospital in not only Pakistan but the whole world, Lahore takes another honour of to be having the country’s largest airport.
A contract worth $382 million of reconstruction of the Lahore’s Allama Iqbal International Airport has been given to the Chinese company.
However, it’s not the first time that the Chinese company has overtaken any project in Pakistan.
Before that, the projects of the Arfa Software Technology Park, The Centaurus Hotel and Karachi-Lahore Motorway between Sukkur and Multan have also been given to the same company.
China’s contribution in Pakistan’s infrastructure is remarkable but it’s better for Pakistani Government to opt for working on some mega projects, itself.
Meanwhile, the Gawadar airport has also been to be reconstructed by China and there is a list of the mega projects that are done by China for us.
Being an independent state, the Govermemt should work on the big infrastructure projects itself.
It will not only boost the employment rate of the country but will also set an example for the other states.
However, the significance of the Lahore’s airport can not be neglected either, as, its the largest project abroad that China Construction Third Engineering Bureau has ever taken.
To be the largest airport of the country, it will surely provide much better facilities to the passengers and will raise the importance of the city in the region.
