Trade and industry
The port of Bin Qasim was built in the 1970s to relieve pressure on the Port of Karachi and is today the second largest port of Pakistan. The port is surrounded by a large industrial area which includes the Pakistan Steel Mills complex in Gulshan-e-Hadeed, Pakistan Machine Tool Factory (PMTF) and the Zulfiqarabad Oil Terminal as well as the nearby industrial estate in Landhi Town. The two neighbourhoods of Ibrahim Hyderi and Rehri are focussed on the fishing industry, complemented by the nearby Korangi Fish Harbour.
