ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan has said the government would soon unveil a comprehensive policy to revive the sick industrial units to gear up economic activity and create job opportunities in the country.
He said this at a meeting with the delegation of the Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce and Industries (FPCCI) in Islamabad.
PM Imran told the delegation that the macro indicators were showing improvement within 16 months. Besides, the record 40 per cent increase in the stock exchange also manifested investors’ trust, he added.
He said the local currency was getting stable, which would further stabilize the prices as well as the economy.
The prime minister assured the delegation that the government is making all-out efforts to make the Pakistani products compete their rivals from other countries for the benefit of the country’s trading community.
On Jan 3, PM Imran Khan had said that the Special Economic Zones (SEZs) of the country would provide the requisite climate for Chinese industries to migrate to Pakistan.
“There are many industries that wish to relocate from China. We had yet to provide them the environment for them to relocate to Pakistan. This special economic zone is that environment that China seeks,” he had said.
“China’s Premier Li has said clearly that if we provide them the environment, they will push Chinese industries to Pakistan. They will not only invest in Pakistan, but transfer technology and increase our productivity,” the premier had said.
These remarks of the premier came after performing the groundbreaking of Faisalabad’s state-of – the-art Allama Iqbal Industrial City.
