Economy[edit]

It is home town of Sialkot International Airport, Sialkot Export Processing Zone and Sialkot Dry Port. Sambrial has experienced exponential economic growth because of its strategic crossroads location in the Northeast corner of Punjab. People travelling between Sialkot & Wazirabad drive through Sambrial. The road Sialkot to Rawapindi passes through Sambrial. The recent construction of Tehsil complexes, DDPO (formerly DSP) and other tehsil management offices has triggered a boom in construction and regional migration for jobs. Although the current developments are a contributing factor in the current progress but the historical role can also not be overlooked. A closer look at the map of Punjab reveals that Sambrial lies on the connecting route between GT road and the rest of Eastern and Northern Punjab. In fact, it was a strategic location for trade and military placements by Mughals and British rulers alike in the pre independence(subcontinent)times.
