Keep faith in us, finance minister tells investors
Marking the three years of the Pakistan Tehreek Insaf (PTI) government, Federal Minister for Finance and Revenue Shaukat Tarin said Friday that to allay the reservations of investors and traders is his primary concern so people are happy.
It is our primary duty to keep traders and investors happy so they bring in more investments into the country, said finance minister Shaukat Tarin, addressing a session of traders and investors in Karachi.
“If you’re happy, your head offices will be happy which will translate into more investments. We have charted out small, medium and long-term projects to reform the economy of the country.”
“Keep faith in us,” he said, adding that the sole purpose of his appointment was to keep investors happy and satisfied. We have conducted an assessment last week on what we had set out to do, what we have so far achieved, and what we failed to do, he said.
“We have shared the readings of that assessment with Prime Minister Imran Khan as well,” he said.
The focus was the reservations by the traders, sectors like energy, agriculture and industries, as well as CPEC project, Shaukat Tarin said.
He said the government is trying to bring inflation under control and has devised a plan for that.
He said the government is trying to maximum facilitate the industries and has prepared short, mid and long term plans to for the development of the industrial sector.
He said the government could not solve the problems due to the IMF programme and economic issues but now it is trying to solve the problems facing by the industries on a preferential basis.
Tarin said the government has given relief on raw materials for the industries and the results would be soon evident.
