New Economic City – Building a Sustainable, Smart and Integrated Model City

The development of New Economic City (NEC) is envisioned to reduce urbanization pressure on the existing cities and to reimagine the role of cities as engines of growth in real terms. The Urban Unit has been tasked to lead this city development venture in the capacity of a Project Management Unit (PMU).

Pre-feasibility studies have already been concluded by engaging international consultants, and have essentially validated 4 sites out of 12 - Lillah, Sukheki, Pindi Bhattian and Gujrat - as the ‘most suitable’ sites for the development of a NEC. The project is in the next stage for a detailed assessment and calibration study to select the optimal site, followed by a Technical Feasibility Study, Detailed Master Planning and Detailed Engineering Design of catalytic projects on the selected site.
