Reformation of the Small Industries Development Board (SIDB)

To reform the Small Industries Development Board (SIDB), the Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa has outlined a comprehensive development plan. Entrusted with the promotion and facilitation of small industries in the province, the SIDB has been working under the aegis of the Industries Department to establish training and manufacturing centers for small and cottage industries besides developing small industries estates throughout the province. A meeting for SIDB reforms was held at the Planning and Development Department today to share the findings and recommendations of a diagnostic study regarding SIDB sector reforms. These reforms will be contributing to support cottage and small-scale enterprises in the province through a set of demand-based services including infrastructure support, market intelligence, industrial linkages, capacity building and policy advice to boost economic activity and job creation.
