Hangeng receives construction materials for agriculture park
ISLAMABAD, Jan 19 (Gwadar Pro) - Construction materials for the steel structure of Hangeng Agricultural Park at Gwadar Free Zone have arrived at the Gwadar Port.
This will be the first steel structure workshop of the North Free Zone (Phase II of Gwadar Free Zone), the company said in a tweet.
In response to a question by Gwadar Pro, Andy Liao, General Manager of Hangeng Group, said that the first batch of 31 containers of materials meant for construction of the factory had arrived at Gwadar. He added that the factory is expected to start commercial operations in March.
Hangeng Agricultural Group specialises in planting aloe vera, processing and export of agriculture products as well as animal husbandry.
The company has already started working in the North Free Zone during construction and have so far imported a container of raw medicines from Africa and exported it to China after processing at their facility in Gwadar. The process involved 10 employees. However, the volume of imported materials and the export of processed products will increase with time, creating more employment opportunities for Pakistanis, Andy Liao said earlier.
