Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday (Dec28) while addressing a conference of envoys in Islamabad said that we should think beyond the shortcuts and bring changes in the financial structure to enable long-term planning for growth adding that in past economic and foreign policies was not for the betterment of the people, and ultimately Pakistan lost it sovereignty and self-esteem.
“We, as a nation, must change our mindset and become a self-reliant nation to prosper economically,” the premier said “We now must think beyond the shortcuts and bring changes in the financial structure to enable long-term planning for growth.” “Profitability and not profiteering, is what we should opt for to achieve economic stability,” PM Imran remarked.
He added “profitability, businesses and ease of doing business is what we should promote to create wealth and attract investment.” “Overseas Pakistanis have been abstaining from investing in the country due to corruption and mistreatment.”
“Our investors must create an atmosphere of coordination with the overseas Pakistanis,” PM Imran said. “Investors also must ensure assistance, with compassion, to the skilled labour that travels abroad to earn for themselves and their families.”
“We have a major role in distorting the image of the country. We need our envoys and we will utilise them for doing things that have not been done so far,” he said. “We need teamwork which was not there until today. Remember that we overseas Pakistanis are the ones who work for up to 12 hours leaving their families behind,” he said. “There should be special empathy for them; there should be special communities for overseas Pakistanis since these working class people reach abroad braving great difficulties.”
“Therefore we must encourage and promote our youth, businesses and our industries in order to meet the goal of investments,” the premier said. “With this teamwork and performance, Pakistan can prove to be a major winner,” he concluded.
