ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday said that the government had prepared a strategy about reservations of the business community against the accountability watchdog, National Accountability Bureau (NAB).
“A committee comprising businessmen is being formed so that matters pertaining to business community and the NAB could be amicably resolved,” he said while talking to a delegation of representatives belonging to various Chambers of Commerce and Industry in Islamabad.
Imran Khan said the incumbent government was fully committed to provide all possible facilities to the business community.
He said the government would provide all out assistance to facilitate the business community for profitable business activities.
The prime minister said the country’s future was linked to the economic progress. He said a strong partnership between the business community and the government was imperative for economic development of the country.
The delegation appreciated PM Imran for his regular meetings with the business community and his policy to take them along.
The members apprised the prime minister of the problems being faced by the business community and also presented their proposals in this regard.
Chairman National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Javed Iqbal on Thursday said no businessman approached the accountability watchdog complaining about hurdles created by the organisation in doing business.
Addressing an event attended by a large number of businessmen and industrialists in Lahore, Javed Iqbal said a NAB director was appointed to resolve complaints of businessmen and all the regions were directed to do so and inform the relevant people about it.
“Today, it has been 4 months and 28 days and no complaint by a businessman has been received by those directors. If NAB had created such a panic, then at least 4/5 businessmen would have approached the organization,” he said.
