Adviser to Prime Minister on commerce, Abdul Razzak Dawood on Saturday (May 4) while addressing a ceremony in Lahore, stressed that in order to curtail inflation all departments would need to work together adding that inflation was taking place globally not just in Pakistan.
While talking about Prime Minister Imran Khan’s vision to provide maximum relief to the people of Pakistan, he said that government is taking steps to bring Pakistan’s economy on the right path. “Imran Khan’s vision is to provide relief to people but this will take time” he added. The prime minister’s adviser further said that government institutions operating in a loss would need to become profitable, warning of privatization if they failed to do so. According to Dawood, the government would not take any steps which would not be beneficial to people.
Dawood added that in the last five years industries closed in Pakistan and exports fell, however, former finance minister Ishaq Dar failed to take notice. He said past governments had concealed facts from people. “We do not want to be included in the list of importing nations and have to take care of our industries,” Dawood said. Dawood informed that tractors were now being built in Pakistan and exported to African countries.
